Gina Loveless (Caciolo) ’12

Gina Loveless (Caciolo) ’12 tells us: “My first book, Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw, was published in September by Andrews McMeel Publishing in partnership with Epic! Originals. In this elementary school adaptation of Robin Hood, fifth grade has just started and Nadia, the school bully, already rules recess with an unfair Playground Tax. Robin refuses to be pushed around, but all she can think about is winning back her best friend Mary Ann after a disastrous fallout over the summer. To do so, she will have to stand up to Nadia, face the wrath of Assistant Principal Johnson, and become a legendary outlaw at Nottingham Elementary—all while forming a merry band of new friends along the way. The second book, Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw: The Friend Thief, is due out April 2020.”
