ALA Popular Paperbacks For Young Adults

Hooray for Monsoon Summer, which made this year's list of good reads for teens about families compiled by YALSA librarians. Sometimes one needs a salve, as I did after Little Brown sent the news about Sunita. Thanks to my commenters, calls from Mom and sis after they visited the Fire Escape, and this news from YALSA, I'm de-stung.

That's great news about Monsoon Summer, Mitali. It's a book that I find myself recommending often.

Thanks, all, for your good wishes. Melissa, I predict girls are going to LOVE Project Runway -- just the title makes you think of Tyra.

The day you presented at my school, I went to the library and picked up "Monsoon Summer". It's a fabulous book. And after all of those publishers' rejections, "Monsoon Summer" is winning awards! That's amazing!
