The DUFF is a Romantic Times Teen TOP PICK!

...and 4.5 stars--woot! Here's the review:

"Kudos to the 18-year-old Keplinger for writing a heroine whose complicated relationship with sex is honest and heartbreaking. This for-more-mature teens novel deftly illustrates how even consensual sex can be emotionally destructive, and captures thoughts about self-image and the many different types of relationships. Expect to be recommending THE DUFF to friends for years to come."

I love when a new writer gets recognized!

Another Nancy Coffey Literary announcement this week:

Sarah Frances Hardy's picture book, PUZZLED BY PINK was bought by Viking Children's Books. If you haven't seen Sarah's work, check it out at her website here. She is fabulousishness.

Happy weekend all!
