YA Book Talk at Book Riot

Over on Book Riot this week…

I really encourage you to click through and enlarge the image of this Sweet Valley High A-line dress. I didn’t know I needed to see it and my day is a little brighter for it. $49. If any of you buy this, you need to send me a photo so I can share it because it is amazing.

Thanks for hanging out on this wild ride called 2020. See you on Monday with some more YA nonfiction talk.
