I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME on 2 state lists!!!

Yesterday, I drank way too much Diet Pepsi in the afternoon. How do I know this? Because I woke up at 1:30 am wide awake. I tossed and turned for a long time, then finally got up and found the laptop.

So, what happens when you are awake at 3 am and can't go back to sleep?

You go to facebook, click on Cynthea Liu's link about renaissance learning, go to the site and think, wow, how cool she's on here. Then you wonder, hmmm, am I on here? So you stick your name in and holy cow, one of your titles comes up!

You click on it and then, lo and behold, underneath the information about the book it says:

"This quiz is included in the following state lists."

Your brain is a little foggy at 3 am., so you read it again. State lists? State lists!!!

NH Flume Teen Reader's Choice Awards Nominees
SD YARP High School

Do you know what NH and SD stand for? New Hampshire and South Dakota!

On the NH list, my book is on there with the likes of THE HUNGER GAMES, GRACELING and 13 REASONS WHY!!! Now, I'm pretty sure Ava is going to get her ass kicked in the ring with Katniss and Katsa. But what an honor to be on the list!!

Wow. I really can't believe it, but thank you teens and librarians in New Hampshire and South Dakota!

I'm so glad I had insomnia!! Although I may feel differently at 2:00 this afternoon when I'm at work and desperately want a nap.


  1. CONGRATS, LISA!!!! That is so amazing and exciting!

  2. Woo-hoo! That is incredibly cool and gotta be a thrill to just stumble upon it that way. Congratulations on something well-deserved.

  3. Yay!!!! See what good news Facebook can bring? Awesome, Lisa.

  4. Thanks all - I still can hardly believe it! :)
