Dusti Bowling

Get ready for a momentous event! Author Dusti Bowling will be talking about her new middle grade book, MOMENTOUS EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A CACTUS, the follow-up to INSIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A CACTUS. The book continues the story of armless teenager Aven Green as she faces the new challenges of high school. At the event, Dusti will talk about her book, followed by a Q&A and a signing.

“High School. Two words that struck fear into the heart of every armless middle schooler I knew. Which was me. And like two people online.”

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus follows Aven Green as she confronts yet another challenge: high school.

“Those preparing to ‘slay the sucktastic beast known as high school’ will particularly appreciate this spirited read.” —Kirkus (Starred review)

Just as Aven starts to feel comfortable in Stagecoach Pass, with her friends and schoolmates accustomed to her lack of “armage,” everything changes once again. She’s about to begin high school . . . with 3,000 new kids to stare at her. And no matter how much Aven tries to play it cool, nothing prepares her for the reality. In a year filled with confusion, humiliation, and just maybe love, can Aven manage to stay true to herself?

Dusti Bowling holds a Bachelor of Psychology and a Master of Education. She is the author of the well-reviewed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and 24 Hours in Nowhere. She currently lives in Carefree, AZ, with her husband and three daughters.
