Just when you think your novel's time in front of the world is simmering down, somebody finds it and adds it to a list of recommendations and just like that, new readers.
It's truly a terrific experience.
I am in awe of the librarians and teachers, parents and kids, who put these lists together.
Today I'm thankful to the hard-working school librarians in Indiana for adding MAKING FRIENDS WITH BILLY WONG to their list of Intermediate readers' recommendations.
Here's what they said about my middle-grade novel:
Azalea’s summer plans suddenly change when she is sent to Paris Junction, Arkansas to help a grandmother she doesn’t know. Shy and reluctant to talk to others, Azalea meets Billy Wong and finds an unexpected friend.
HERE'S THE LINK to the list.
I am proud and humbled to be included among some of my favorites and some I can't wait to read.
