Kissing the Bee was just chosen as one of the New York Public LIbrary’s 2008 Books for the Teen Age, which made me pretty happy when I saw it in my in-box yesterday morning. Thank you, NYPL!
Congratulations! I just read your op-ed piece on censorship. My book deals with censorship as well, using Chris Crutcher’s Ironman as the target. I am so glad I found your page. I will definitely pick up Kissing the Bee!

Courage in Patience, a story of hope for those who have endured abuse
Thanks, Beth. Glad to hear that you read my NY Times piece – we can’t say it too often, censorship just isn’t the answer to difficult and painful questions and ideas.
Congratulations Kathe! That is quite an honor and I am not surprised. More successes to you! Bravo!
Thank you, Deb – I was very pleased. If it’s OK by the big lions, it *must* be OK!
