It would be a pretty amazing coincidence, wouldn't it? Here's a thing to know about writers: we think long and hard about names, because a name can tell you so much about a character. When a character's name seems to have extra meaning, you can be sure the author did that intentionally. So yes, I had Alex use the call sign "A-Dawg" because he loves dogs. Thanks for a great question! ~Mr. Rogers(less)

Eleven Book Signing with Dylan

I recently enjoyed a fun visit from my friend (and fan of Eleven), Dylan Foyster.


Tom Rogers, author of Eleven, signs a book for his friend DylanDylan was in town to see his grandparents, Joanne and Rusty Muir, but he managed to squeeze in a quick hello while he was here. He’d brought his copy of my book, so we had an impromptu Eleven book signing.


I managed to get Radar to leave him a paw-print, too.


Dylan’s a sixth-grader at West End Middle School in Nashville

Eleven by Tom   Rogers
"compelling story for those of us old enough to have lived through it, very convincing for young readers who weren't yet born on that fateful day. Love how the storylines converge in an unexpected way. Bullies, boy, birthday, dog = well done MG."
Eleven by Tom   Rogers
"I loved this book! Classified YA, but upper elementary would enjoy it also. Looking forward to hosting Tom Rogers at Arcadia Park. "
