Thanks for your question! While I've thought about what happens next for Ivy, Lennie and James (and Brady, and Molly, and Reesa...), there are no current plans for a sequel. If I did write a continuation of their story, I've imagined it would take place when they go off to college. For now, though, what's coming next from me is another standalone YA contemporary, called HOW TO DISAPPEAR coming in summer 2017 (also from HarperTeen).(less)

It's fabulous, and I just marvel at the worlds and characters she creates and the way she describes them. Absolutely gorgeous. Also on my summer reading list: CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber, GIRL OUT OF WATER by Laura Silverman, plus a dozen books that have been on my TBR shelf for months, including LAIR OF DREAMS by Libba Bray and TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT by Sabaa Tahir. Plus I'm looking forward to books coming out this summer like THIS IS HOW IT HAPPENED by Paula Stokes. (less)

Hello friends and readers. I've been away from the blog for a while, and before I jump back into my usual bookish news, I thought I'd let you know what's been going on. It's not a happy story, I'm afraid. 

My husband, Rich, passed away suddenly at the end of November. We had been happily married for 21 years, dated for three years before we got married, and were friends for ten years before that... Read more of this blog post »

Ahhhh... I just adore Maggie Thrash and the weird and wonderful way her brain works. This is the least pretentious memoir you'll ever read. It's honest and vulnerable and page-turny and mysterious. I'm also in awe of Maggie's ability to nail about 10 ...more

I had a chance to read an advance copy, and it was just the story I needed. A sweet and uplifting story of growing up, finding your way, and dealing with loss. Theatre fans will love all the references to their favorite plays and musicals, too!

“I want to kiss you," I say, "but I seem to be holding this cat."

Skunk lifts his hand and touches it to the side of my face. His fingers are warm from carrying the hot skillet to the table. He regards me very seriously, and for a moment I wonder if he's about to tell me we should Focus on Bicycle Repair. Instead he just looks at me for a very long time.

"You're beautiful," says Skunk, "and completely batshit.”
Hilary T. Smith, Wild Awake

“Did you see that guy in the back, from the radio station?’

His smile is a jar full of fireflies.

‘Crazy Girl,’ he says.
‘All I saw was you.”
Hilary T. Smith, Wild Awake

“...both he and she were creek beds, quiet when they were full and quiet when they were dry. But when they were half-full, wearing a coat of shallow water, the current bumped over the rocks and valleys in the creek beds, wearing down the earth. Giving someone else a little of who they were hurt more than giving up none or all of it.”
Anna-Marie McLemore, When the Moon Was Ours
