Author Signing--Jennifer Brown--The Hate List
Yesterday, I ventured a few short miles from my house to the Borders in Lee's Summit, MO to go see Jennifer Brown sign copies of The Hate List. I took my ARC and bought a lovely finished copy as well.
Jennifer was completely awesome and just about the nicest person I've met in quite awhile. I asked her about her next book and she said she has something coming out in Spring 2011. Needless to say, I totally can't wait. You know what else?! She reads my blog. I've been feeling all overwhelmed with my TBR list of review books. Last week I was actually considering taking a blogging break, but meeting Jennifer made me excited about blogging again, so thank you for that Jennifer.
She also gave me a signed bookmark and two "Agent of Change" bracelets which I will totally be rockin' at work tomorrow. We are starting a new bullying campaign, so I'm hoping to make all of my students "Agents of Change".
The Hate List is one of my favorite books of the year. It's a fantastic and powerful read that I think should be required reading in high schools across the country. If you want to read my entire review, you can find it here.
