AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE
I'm with AuthorsNow! Check out my profile and find other great authors.
Laura Simeon, a school librarian at OWS and Vista Academy, had this to say about The Great Wall of Lucy Wu.
Get your hunger on at Jama Kim Rattigan's review at Alphabet Soup. Her visuals are amazing!
I'm in good company with Mitali Perkins and Ruta Sepetys at Edge Book Reviews.
Me and Judy Blume in the same sentence? I'm in a swoon over my review at Abby the Librarian.
LUCY received a 'C' - for *CLEAN* from the Library of Clean Reads!
Kathy Gaglione at Hers for the Reading called Lucy "the every-girl," which is about one of the nicest things you can say, I think.
Forget the Tiger Mother! Pragmatic Mom praises LUCY as part of a set of books that "depict Asian American kids in an authentic and honest way".
LOVE this review by a sixth-grader, printed in the Brattleboro Reformer. If Chaya Holch writes this well NOW, I can't wait to see what comes out in a few years!
Reading in Color says "Definitely one of my favorite debuts of the year, one of my favorites of the year, period."
