It’s not every day a ghost curls up in your lap … But when little Henrietta decides I’m trustworthy and introduces me to her teacher, Charlotte, I find myself wrapped up in the story of their murders. Before long, my friends and I are saving a building, solving a murder, and telling the stories that a lot of people in our small town would rather be left untold. Our best hope for ourselves and for Henrietta and Charlotte is that the truth really will set us free.
Andi Cumbo-Floyd lives in the Southwestern Mountains of Virginia with her young son, an old dog, and a puppy who likes to eat furniture. When she’s not writing she likes to cross-stitch, binge magical shows, and garden.
Cast of Charlotte And The Twelve: The FilmI always enjoy imagining the cast for the books I write, but this book is tricky because 12 of the cast members would need to be young children. And since I don’t yet know who our youngest superstars will be, I’ll just say this – these kids need to be smart, cute, and sassy enough to upstage the adults. I’m thinking Rudy from The Cosby Show but with the panache of the Jaden Smith and the wiles of Lonnie Chavis. The rest of the cast is easier to choose:
- Mary Steele – Sophia Lillis – fierce, a little odd, and already practiced at performing supernatural abilities.
- Charlotte Braxton – Lovie Simone Oppong – strong, poised, charismatic without being flamboyant.
- Shamila – Dawnn Lewis – a wise, mature woman who is confident and informed and who can lead without aggression.
- Ms. Steele – Laura Linney – smart, savvy, but not needing to be the center of the action
- Marcie – Marsai Martin – soft-spoken and loyal, dependable, resourceful
- Javier – Marcel Ruiz – sweet, gentle, fierce but soft, and very wise for his age
- Nicole – Sienna Agudong – unassuming and very All-American but not in a banal way.
- Mr. Meade – Matt Frewer – quirky, super smart, very kind, a little reserved
- Isaiah – Omar Epps – put-together, savvy, kind but no-nonsense, incredibly devoted.
- Stephen Douglas – Jeremy Renner – able to be the hero but doesn’t need to have that role.
