A cursed diamond. A thief on the run. And one very busy young detective!
Today we’re so excited to reveal the cover for our upcoming middle grade novel, Julieta and the Diamond Enigma, by Luisana Duarte Armendáriz! A New Visions Award winner, this title will be out this May!
Nine-year-old Julieta is FINALLY about to put a purple pin in her family’s world traveling map! She’s off to Paris to help her art-handler dad collect pieces for a new exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Sadly, they must leave Julieta’s very pregnant mother behind, but they’re sure they’ll be back before the baby is born.
But things go awry when she and Dad walk in on a thief stealing the Louvre’s most prized piece—a priceless cursed diamond with a shady history. When Julieta runs for help, she accidentally frees the thief instead! Now Dad’s job is in danger AND he’s become a suspect.
Can Julieta determine who the thief really is before it’s too late? Find out if Julieta cracks the case in May 2020!
The amazing cover art is by Olivia Aserr and the cover design is by Sammy Yuen.
