Peter Aronson is a former award-winning legal affairs journalist, a former attorney in New York City, and now he writes essays, short stories and children’s books. His first two middle-grade books were part of his Groundbreaker Series, about extraordinary individuals doing extraordinary things: Bronislaw Huberman: From child prodigy to hero, the violinist who saved Jewish musicians from the Holocaust was published in 2018. Jeannette Rankin: America’s First Congresswoman was published in 2019.

Aronson’s current book is a middle-grade novel, MANDALAY HAWK’S DILEMMA: THE UNITED STATES OF ANTHROPOCENE. It’s about young teens fighting global warming.

Kirkus Reviews called it: “A scathing work and an essential blueprint for youth battling climate change.”

And coming in 2022 … Aronson and co-author Shep Messing, a former U.S. soccer star, U.S. Olympian and now broadcaster for the New York Red Bulls, have collaborated on a trilogy of soccer novels for middle-grade readers. The books follow Teresa Rodriguez, a young teen who learns about life on and off the field when her father is suddenly deported and she must juggle family responsibility, team leadership, friendships and her love for the game. It’s a young teen’s saga for our complex and troubled times.
