New Book for Tweens: Ask Emma “Be Brave. Be Kind. Be You.” #Giveaway #BeeAReader #AskEmma

Thanks Little Bee Books for partnering for this giveaway of the brand new book, Ask Emma, written by the Mother Daughter team of Sheryl and Carrie Berk. Ask Emma is for kids aged 8-12 and it’s pretty cool that the co-author Carrie Berk is only 15 years old! Carrie is a blogger herself, and in her book, Ask Emma, Emma decides launch an advice blog for her middle school classmates. Sounds like a great idea, but as you can imagine things get complicated! Kids today will quickly relate to this book, the technology, and the modern problems of kids their own age while also needing to navigate social media.

New Book for Tweens: Ask Emma

Emma’s message to her own Blog readers: “Be Brave. Be Kind. Be You.” is something tween readers and their Mamas will definitely appreciate.


The mother daughter duo authors are proud to work with No Bully, an organization committed to leading kids into a cyberbully-free world. Learn more at

More About Ask Emma


Emma Woods knows just how to fix all her peers’ problems-or so she thinks-in this first book in the brand-new middle grade series Ask Emma, from the bestselling creators behind the Cupcake Club series!

When 13-year-old Emma Woods gets that tingling feeling in her fingertips, she knows she’s on to a great idea–and starting an advice blog for her classmates at Austen Middle may be one of her most brilliant ones yet! Who better to give advice on friendship, style, school, and even crushes than someone who’s going through it too? 

But when Ask Emma goes live, she quickly realizes not everyone sees it that way. Suddenly, Emma is bombarded with peers asking her to help them postpone quizzes, get out of detention, and cut gym class short. This wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. . . .What’s worse, someone is posting hurtful comments, telling her to mind her own business. Despite her good intentions, Emma’s blog seems to only be getting her-and her friends–deeper and deeper into trouble.

Will Ask Emma come to an end before it’s really begun? Or can Emma find her voice, write what’s in her heart, and truly stand up for what she believes in?

About the Authors

A New York Times-bestselling author several times over, Sheryl Berk is most proud of the dozens of books she has co-written with her daughter, Carrie, including The Cupcake Club and Fashion Academy series. Ask Emma is their third collaboration.

 At only fifteen years old, Carrie Berk is already a bestselling children’s book author, playwright, dancer, singer, actor, model and lifestyle blogger.

Thanks to Little Bee Books for partnering for this giveaway and sending us a sample of the book to read and providing a prize package for our winner. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
