Kristin Cashore Says Hello to readergirlz

Kristin Cashore, author of Graceling, would have attended the chat last night had she not been on a plane to Bologna at the time, heading to the Children's Book Fair. She asked me to post something for her:

"I'm sorry I can't be there, but I'm suspended above the Atlantic!"

The postergirlz named Graceling as one of the recommended reads in the March issue of readergirlz. It was only after we'd informed Kristin of this selection that we discovered she too loved The Adoration of Jenna Fox!
