STEM 5th grader publishes children's book on Amazon

STEM 5th grade virtual student, Ashmi Sengupta, spent one year writing and illustrating her first published book, ‘Rita and the Range’.  Her parents worked with various publishing companies and Amazon and Kindle picked it up.
She will be coming to STEM next week to share the process with the kindergarten and 5th grade classes.
Here is the description of the book from Amazon:

“12 year old Rita, lives in a world of her own. A rebel by nature, headstrong, ambitious and adventurous, angry on her loved ones, she heads out to face the world of her own. Looking for respite, in search for answers and armed with willpower she realizes that the world is not what it seems!

Incredible monsters, unexplained people , vanishing vehicles and a long lost magical land from long forgotten dreams….Rita’s thin line between fact and fantasy begins to blur, her sense of time is lost.

Will she make it? What realization awaits Rita? This roller coaster ride will keep readers guessing till the end.”

Congratulations to Ashmi!
