Annamarie Carlson (she, her)
Claude desperately wants to ride the tap tap along with all of the other exciting, wonderful people in his community. But every day, his Manman says no--there is too much else for them to do. But finally - finally! - after church on Dimanch morning, Claude and his whole family ridde the tap tap to the beach.

I'm the author of SHRINKING VIOLET from MTV/Pocket Books and INDIGO BLUES and PURE RED from Flux Books. SHRINKING VIOLET will be debuting as the movie RADIO REBEL on the Disney Channel in early 2012! When I'm not writing, I'm either listening to music, eating chocolate or swimming--sometimes all at once!
