A Writer's Tribe™ Book Launch

In Raina’s (Un)Happy Birthday, a young girl discovers how to gently respond to unwanted affection from her extended family, while expressing her love for them on her own terms. Raina, a little girl with a loving family, dreads her birthdays. Though she looks forward to cake and presents, she dislikes the pressure on her to hug and kiss relatives. She is annoyed when she is greeted by family members in ways that seem innocuous to them, not considering how their expressions of affection make Raina feel. A faithful friend, her toy bunny Lola, helps Raina discover new ways of expressing affection and birthday joy.

A native of Germany and the mother of two girls, Britta Stromeyer Esmail is a writer passionate about raising resilient girls who feel empowered to use their own voices. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, horseback riding and reading with her daughters in their home in Northern California.
