Okay, I'm starting with a question: Why is it that, no matter how many good reviews one of my books gets on Goodreads, the top review displayed is ALWAYS negative? Always. Like, Beastly has over 100,000 good reviews. Those can't ALL be my friends because I'm not THAT popular (not even close). Yet the top 2 reviews displayed are one star. My newest book is over 4 stars, but the first review displayed is someone who doesn't like it because she didn't realize it was an e-mail narration, despite the title and description. Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is, maybe read past the first review or display them by date or something. Goodreads algorithm hates me!

Anyway, bio:

How writers predict what will become obsolete: Breathing Underwater for the iPhone generation

 My publisher is releasing my 2001 book, Breathing Underwater, with a new cover, its third. The reason for this is, basically, because boys don't like to read the book with its current cover, which shows a boy and a girl. I actually got an e-mail from a teacher who wanted to know how to buy 100 copies of the book with its 2001 cover for this reason. I find this a bit frustrating because I feel lik

Nope, though that's a cool idea. It's an update of Daddy Long Legs.

“I tell him the ugly duckling grew up to be a huge asshole.” “Why?”
Alex Flinn, Beheld

“Sometimes, I stay up all night reading book after book, for I have no family to object, and when I wake in the morning, slumped over a table or fallen off a chair, back aching, cold because no one thought to cover me with a blanket or tell me to come to bed, I feel very fortunate.” Silence”
Alex Flinn, Beheld

“It is hard to know how to save the world if one has never lived in it.”

“Before she came here, she'd thought she could be independent. Now, she knew she could -- but only if she had the help of others and was able to help them in return.”
Alex Flinn, Girls of July
