NYC Host: Summer Catch up!

I think the ongoing heatwave must have fried my brain, it's been so long since I posted about all of the fun summer book events going on here in NYC! But in honor of diva Melissa's book release this week, I thought I'd share a quick snapshot from her recent NYC YA baby shower. Left to right, that's Natalie Standiford, me, Jenny Han, Gayle Forman, Libba Bray, and Melissa, of course! What do YA writers discuss over Sunday brunch? Mostly John Hughes films, it turns out.
A book birthday and a baby all at the same time? CONGRATS, Melissa!

And speaking of releases, I've been so caught up in celebrating family that I haven't had a chance to share the trailer for my newest release, What Would My Cell Phone Do? Bad author! 
I'm headed upstate for the month of August, where unfortunately my internet connection is less than reliable, but I promise to try to be more timely about these things going forward! 


Happy summer, and happy reading!
