I had a great time on Saturday when I attended a YA author Q&A/Book signing at Joseph-Beth Bookstore. I met up with three friends and had a great time.
There were seven YA authors on the panel. All of them were great to talk to, down to earth, and open people. Read more over at Sarah’s blog – Folding Fields.
I’m very glad that I went there on Saturday. I was inspired by the personal how-they-got-there stories from the authors reference their paths to publication.
I’ve finished reading The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy. It’s wonderful story about a young girl finding her path in life with the help of friends that she didn’t know she had. The Cinderella Society will leave you wishing for a lavender envelope, a chocolate latte, and having a first love all over again. This is a must read for teens and adults alike who know that life is much more than what’s on the surface.
Anyone who wants a strong, contemporary YA story that has no paranormal elements in it should definitely read The Cinderella Society. I guess that makes a YA story that isn’t dark…who would’ve thought 😉
