Haven't done one of these for a while, so I decided, it's time!
A hundred points for you if you know where this image is from! Watched a lot of that show in my kids' younger days.
Readers send me notes via regular mail as well as email, and I appreciate every single one of them. I try to respond to emails within a few days and regular mail within a couple of weeks. If I'm busy drafting a book or traveling, it may take longer.
Here's what some readers have said recently:
"I read three of your books, I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME, FAR FROM YOU and CHASING BROOKLYN. They are really good books for me because I hate reading and when I started reading I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME, it changed how I feel about reading." ~ Morgen, 8th grade
"I'm sure tons of readers have said this before, but I'll add my voice to the list: I love your books so much. I love that you write in both verse and prose and how realistic and down-to-earth your characters are. IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES is one of the first books my sister and I really bonded over. There's a five-year age gap between us and so we didn't really share the same taste in books but we both fell in love with the series, and now we read lots of books together." ~ Yun-A from South Korea
"I recently acquired a copy of MY SECRET GUIDE TO PARIS. My sixth graders saw it at the book fair and decided we should add it to our class library. As I have been reading it for our daily 20 minutes of reading, they have been intrigued by my giggles and tears. As a middle school teacher, I was impressed that it's a book about love and family. There were still the harsh realities of what my students deal with on a daily basis, but there was also the message of hope." ~ Ms. McCall, 6th grade teacher
"Your book called MY SECRET GUIDE TO PARIS was amazing! It was the best book I have read in my life and I want you to write more books like it." ~ Taylor, 4th grade
(Psst... Taylor here's a secret. I am, so stay tuned!!)
