When we got Boudreaux three years ago, I hoped she’d keep me company while writing, be a warm, faithful soul who’d stay by me as I worked. She’s been that and more.
Boo’s been around since the beginning of BLUE BIRDS, back when I started reading everything I could find on the Lost Colony of Roanoke. She took a special shine to the manuscript, too. Here she is with first-round edits,
and now, with an advance reader copy.
It seemed fitting that Boo get her own copy of BLUE BIRDS, but seeing as she hasn’t yet learned to read and it’s not as tasty as she first hoped, Boo’s offering to give her copy away.
If you’d like to read the book a full seven months before it’s published, enter below!

I loved MAY B. and would love the chance to read BLUE BIRDS seven months early.
Sarah M says
I love historical fiction. Doesn’t matter if it’s considered adult or YA. 🙂
Jill the OWL says
I’m looking forward to it because I loved May B. I even used it for my 6th graders as a full class read of a novel in verse. They loved it too!
Amy Rogers Hays says
I’m so excited for BLUE BIRDS!
Why am I looking forward to BLUE BIRDS.
I read May B and also enjoyed reading it to my girls, as a reader and an aspiring author I am inspired by authors like yourself that is genuinely nice and gracious, I don’t know if you recall but years ago you gave me advice and also shared your publishing journey. I also recalled when May B found a new home prior to that how devastating it was for you when the previous home changed, however your perseverance and calm nature taught me a great lesson about the business and how things change so fast. Now you have another book coming out soon and I am so happy for your success and also supporting your talent.
Mary Preston says
I remember reading a post where you talked about the cover. The story has stayed with me.
Margaret Simon says
I hate to call in on a promise, but I do believe you told my students over Skype that they would get a first copy. We start school soon and some of last year’s students will be returning to my class. They will be so excited to hear about your new book.
Love the dog pics. I have a schnoodle Charlie who is my constant companion. Boo looks like a poodle mix.
Congratulations on the upcoming release of Blue Birds!
A storyteller-poet like you combined with the muse like Bordreaux… how could this book not be awesome?
Jen P says
Adored May B!
I loved May B, too (was thrilled to see six copies of it at our local library!) and look forward to reading Blue Birds as well 🙂 Congratulations in advance on it’s upcoming release…
Faith Hough says
She is a beautiful dog. It must be nice to have a faithful, furry companion about while you think and dream and write.
Besides the fact that I’m totally intrigued by Roanoke, I want to read Blue Birds because you wrote it and I think you’re brilliant!
Such a sweet, supportive doggy!
Irene Latham says
Anything you write, Caroline, I want to read. xo
Joy McCullough-Carranza says
Aw, I love that your sweet doggy has been with your through your process! I loved MAY B and am super excited for anything you write! Can’t wait to read this!
Leigh Anne Eck says
I adored May B. and I am sure I will love Blue Birds as well.
Stephanie Wooten says
EEEP! I can’t wait! I love your words so much. 🙂
My students and I loved May B, and I know they’d jump for joy to read Blue Birds as well!
I love reading historical fiction and I’m sure my students would be very excited to read it as well.
