All good things must come to end. (But really? Must they? Or is that a whole other subject?) So it's time to head back to Cali. And I am one lucky girl because Dad took me to the bookstore yesterday. (Don't worry, I didn't freak Dad out with my lust for books. I controlled myself and only picked out two.)
The first of which I am seriously sucked into. BECOMING CHLOE by Catherine Ryan Hyde is like a like journey to "Beautiful" with Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl. Sort of. Anyway, I'm about halfway through and I can't wait to get on the plane and burn through the rest. (I'll probably finish before we fly over Texas.)
The second half of my trip will be dedicated to BURNED by the fabulous Ellen Hopkins. Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend the Big Sur Children's Writing Workshop and I had a one on one with Ellen Hopkins. She had read and written out comments on the first 15 pages of my novel and I have to admit, I was a bit starstruck. Simply amazed that I was sitting there, chatting with this amazing storyteller. Plus, she taught me a lot.
So that's what's on my reading list for today. What are you reading? And must all good things really come to an end?
