Congratulations, Emily! You win a galley copy of BEAUTY SHOP FOR RENT. I’ll email you later for your address and I hope you enjoy my book!

I recently received my first review that will be running in the April edition of School Library Journal. Whew! So far so good . . .

School Library Review

“Abbey Garner, 15, has learned a lot from her hardworking great-grandmother, with whom she lives in rural Maryland. They run a beauty shop together, but Granny Po would like to retire and rent it out for profit. … This deceptively simple book reveals Abbey as a wonderful character who will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. Her quiet, almost folksy lifestyle demonstrates the powerful impact of a loving family and good mentors. –Susan Rile, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY”

I hope everyone has an amazing holiday weekend!
