rgz Newsflash: Sonya Sones' Poetry

We know and love Sonya for her verse novels. Did you know she now has an adult novel titled The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus? Go, Sonya!

In celebration of kids heading to college, Sonya is writing poems, daily, from the mother's point of view as her teen departs. Click here for her blog. Check out this fresh, poignant work, especially if you are headed off to university this season. Maybe you'll gain a bit of insight into your mom. Just maybe...
