Earlier this fall, I tweeted Jennifer Mathieu to see if she would come and speak to our writing club. Well, yesterday SHE DID! It was so great. Our students had come up with great questions and we had an intimate group and were able to ask her all kinds of things. We were so excited to find out that she has a new book coming out this next summer called Devoted. Several of our girls and a mom had the chance to read The Truth About Alice (her first novel) and it was passed around quickly! I am so grateful to Jennifer for taking time out of her busy schedule to come visit us, bring us bookmarks, and answer all of our questions! You can find out more information about her at: http://www.jennifermathieu.com/.
Last weekend I made a stop at Half-Price Books in Rice Village and I found so many great treasures. They even had a clearance section with books for $1! I picked up Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass and have really enjoyed reading it. It tells the story of three main characters and how their lives meet as they camp out together to watch the stars. It's a fun read because it alternates between different points of view. I would highly recommend it!
