I heard Donna read from This Gorgeous Game during NY Teen Author Week recently and I can't WAIT to read it. She is such a talented author and an incredibly smart and wonderful person too!

You will love the book, Sarah -- and guess whose new book is in my to-read pile?

Don't be nervous.
Others have picked it up because of the pretty cover.

YESSS This post is awesome.

The best books I read in March were both YA: Peak by Roland Smith and Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

Thanks for leaving a comment! Good to hear from you. :) How are you?

I haven't read Peak yet, but I have read Among the Hidden. I enjoy Haddix's works and have been saying for years that I need to read the rest of the Shadow Children books.

I love those Daisy Dawson books. The first one makes me tear up when I read it to my girls.
