They're not really sleeping, I swear!

OK, I know that in the post below, it might _look_ as though the front row of students fell into a coma during my classroom visit at Sacred Heart School in Bethlehem, PA yesterday.  But really, the student in the photo was just leaning to the side to avoid blocking the photographer’s view.


Anyway, this was my first visit since the release of AFTER EVER AFTER, which just came out on Monday.  I was so excited to talk about the new book!  It’s gotten great press from both the usual book-review periodicals, including the nicest review I’ve ever gotten:


It’s also gotten written up glowingly in several important blogs:

Anyway, it’s really nice to be appreciated.  Between the magazines, the bloggers, and that obviously fascinated boy in the front row, I am thrilled by the reception AFTER EVER AFTER has gotten already!

    Yes, if you are writing, you get a Get Out Of Blogging Free card. In fact, what are you doing reading these comments. Go write another book. Extra Credit if you can work in skateboarding!

    I read Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie and I loved it. I highly anticipated for After, Ever After to come out and got my hands on it as soon as I could. I read it in two days and hardly could put it down. The ending was so beautiful and touching that I was crying.
    Thank you for writing such great books and keep going.
