If you're in the New Jersey area on Sunday, March 3rd, come on over to the
Sparkhouse, where I will be reading from, discussing, and signing NOWHERE GIRL as part of a Middle Grade Symposium for World Read-Aloud Day, along with fellow authors Audrey Vernick and Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich. Hope to see you there!

I have some big news: not one, but TWO new books are on the horizon! First is a middle-grade novel, DAHLIA’S RULES FOR GHOSTING, which will be coming out from Walker in spring 2013. And next, a brand new picture book: HULLABALOO, a sesquipedalian celebration, will be coming out from Clarion Books. I’m thrilled these books will soon be available for all to read!

A huge thanks to all those who came together in Burlington, VT, to make the Burlington Book Festival's Youthapalooza a resounding success. An eclectic assortment of authors, much enthusiastic book-talk, not to mention panels and book sales and signings galore. Could a day be any more awesome? I think not.

It was party time at Newtonville Books today, when family, friends, and brand-new readers gathered to help me celebrate the release of my debut middle-grade novel NOWHERE GIRL. Much laughter, mingling, and cupcakes were had enjoyed by all!
