On the Road again ...

First off, congrats to Lisa P. who won the ARC of Kiersten White's Paranormalcy that I snagged at ALA. When you read the book you'll see why the title must be in pink. This was a very fun, well-crafted read for ages 12 and up. I especially loved the character Lend and the new twists on paranormal.I am headed to my summer haunt on the beaches of Lake Michigan with my large family. This summer has been blistering, and I'm thrilled to be able to escape the craziness that is D.C. for awhile. I have a huge stack of books to read by lots of my YA friends. And, if you haven't read The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson yet, do so. It's lovely and poetic and whimsical and wrenching.I will, however, be making stops along the way at some fine indie bookstores to sign Forget-Her-Nots. So please come see me in you live in Michigan. I'll be in Ann Arbor at Nicola's, in Traverse City at Horizon Books, and in Leland at Leelanau Books. And please keep your fingers crossed that I hear some good news about a certain manuscript soon. Also, I hope to see you at the amazing Bring YA to PA on August 21st in West Chester, PA.Sweet basil and orange crocuses to you!
