loving this so far

I LOVED the first 1/3 of the book. However, the rest of it had too many characters to keep track of and I wanted more of Amy! Still, a great read by a genius writer.

I liked this one, but had a hard time with the multiple viewpoints and long flashbacks. I'm just a YA person, I guess.

Yum-Yum the Warrior Hi April! I just wanted to say hi. I live in the Austin area as well - you came to my school for a book signing in 2009. I won't tell you which school for security reasons, but it was a middle school. I am a huge fan!


Stephanie Hi April! Thanks for finding me here! It's always nice to connect with other authors, especially Austin area ones! I'll be looking into your books soon. :)
