Esther Freud's Lucky Break, and Therapy in YA Novels
Linkies. And Maureen Johnson's book party.


At the Baltimore Book Festival (thanks to Susane for the photo!) -- here in order of height (shorter to taller) you see:

Maryrose Wood, Sarah Mlynowski, me, Susane Colasanti and Joanna Pearson. 

You can't tell, but Joanna and I are wearing the SAME SKIRT, hers in brown, mine in gray. 
We had fun. It was pouring rain. I revealed myself to be bitter, sarcastic and full of bile -- but possibly in a good way. Thanks to everyone who came out, and to these women of YA for being such fun conversationalists.
