About the Author

Cindy Baldwin is a fiction writer, essayist, and poet. She grew up in North Carolina and still misses the sweet watermelons and warm accents on a daily basis. As a middle schooler, she kept a book under her bathroom sink to read over and over while fixing her hair or brushing her teeth, and she dreams of writing the kind of books readers can't bear to be without. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and daughter, surrounded by tall trees and wild blackberries. Where the Watermelons Grow is her debut novel.

Reviews

"Southern charm and ghostly magic bridge the loss of 11-year-old Annie Lee's daddy. Once again, Baldwin crafts a solid story of hardship tempered by community and resilience."--Kirkus Reviews
"Genuine and hopeful, Annie Lee's story is one of finding courage in tough circumstances, of love and vulnerability, and of the power of music, despite one's imperfections."--Booklist
"Intermingling themes of grief and loss with moments of unexpected, joyful connection, Baldwin depicts character growth with particular grace."--Publishers Weekly
"Targeted to kids who sometimes feel invisible or afraid, Baldwin's prose challenges them to be the bravest and wisest versions of themselves, delivering the message that it is our brokenness that makes us beautiful, not our perfection."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"As delicate and powerful as a sonata, Annie Lee's story of music, magic, loss, and love should not be missed!"--Jessica Day George, New York Times bestselling author of Tuesdays at the Castle
