I met Adam Gidwitz. Yes, I'm bragging, yes, he was great. Super cute (which never hurts), very funny, and an engaging speaker who was both entertaining for adults and perfect for kids. I think that Adam Gidwitz must be the perfect mix of grownup and child. I'm not explaining it well, but when you read his books, you know what I mean. His books are wonderful stories about childhood, with enough gore and horror to satisfy even the most bloody-minded of us, and enough truth to make me cry. When he signed my copy of this book after a nice chat about how his first book made me cry, he wrote that he hoped this book made me cry too. He succeeded. I laughed, I cried, I was grossed out, I was nervous, I loved the whole thing. I'm so glad that Adam Gidwitz started writing books.
