The illustrious Horn Review gave RECOVERY ROAD a STARRED REVIEW in it's new issue. For you non-kids book people that's really good.

And fun too, as when I was in fourth grade, some teachers got together and got me hooked up with HORN REVIEW as a kid reviewer because I liked to read. So they sent me a book called ... I think ... JULIA OF THE WOLVES which I tried to read and instantly got distracted from because there was a dirt-clod fight raging across the street that I had to be part of, or something else ...

But here is the Horn Review popping up again in my life ....

  1. That review totally gave away the ending. =( You should've put SPOILER ALERT. Man... =(

  2. Hi, I’m a new follower from Edge of Escape . Please stop by, I’d love to have your book-savvy opinion of my site and a teenage viewpoint.

  3. Hi, I have a read a lot of your books including Recovery Road, and I love them! I heard a really long time ago that your book Gender Blender was going to be made into a TV movie... I was really excited because that book pretty much made me understand boys. But then I never heard anything else about a movie. What's up with that?
