You've Been Berry Berry Good To Bamboo People!

When you write a book that isn't a gothic-zombie-romantic-thriller-optioned-for-a-movie-before-pub-date kind of novel, you count on many, many advocates to spread the news so that young people can discover your story. That's why I'm eternally grateful to the bloggers and reviewers who have recommended Bamboo People (Charlesbridge, July 2010). Feel free to click like crazy on the links to read the reviews:

Did I miss anybody? If so, please leave a note in the comments and I will add your review to the list. With a loud shout of thanks.

Of course, I also rejoice over industry reviews from the likes of Horn Book, Kirkus, Booklist and PW (read them here), but there's a Burma Shave kind of buzz that can only be generated by bunches of bloggers. And tweets. Plus Facebook "likes" and mentions. So, thank you, thank you, thank you, to everybody who has supported the launch of this book!
