Presenting: the game board!
The first book in the Roll of the Dice series is ROCKET MAN. (You should totally read it! Check the buy links here.)
In Rocket Man, Serena and her friends are a little bummed about their dating lives. To cheer up - and cheer each other on - Serena creates a game board that calls back to their middle school days.
Did you do things like this? When I was a girl, we had folded paper fortune tellers, or we'd hold the stem of an apple while twisting the apple and reciting the alphabet (when the stem breaks, you learn the first letter of your beloved's name).
Serena and her friends update the game for their adult status, but they are still girlishly excited to find out a bit more about their romantic futures.
I, personally (since I'm happily married to my own forever man already), am girlishly excited about the game board! My pal Alice Johnston, a clearly talented graphic artist, took my silly idea and turned it into this beautiful illustration.
Go on, roll the dice! And let me know - who will your forever man be?
