One of the 9th graders on the retreat I was helping lead this weekend was reading Just Listen. Funny to come home to your post on the author I was going to look into when I got home!ReplyDelete
I have heard of this author, but not read anything by her!ReplyDelete
great author pick! I have her in my TBR.ReplyDelete
I agree - it is great to surf around the pages of other Weekly Geeks and find new authors. I have not heard about this one either, and I don't read much YA, but that can easily change I guess. Thanks for an interesting post.ReplyDelete
