Today's good news brought to you in part by, Booklist.

... What will grab readers in this first novel is the realistic sense of the diverse neighborhood community, both rough and caring. With lots of fast, immediate dialogue, the characters’ grief, anger, and heartbreaking coming-to-terms are realistic.

Thank you, Booklist!


  1. Whoo-Hoo!! CONGRATULATIONS, Danette! I can only imagine how exciting this must be for you! A good review by Booklist is nothing to take lightly. This is definitely AWESOME news! Can't wait to see your novel in print & on the shelves in B&N . . . :)

  2. Thank you, Crystal! I'm trying hard not to freak out. What if the stores I visit don't have it??? What if there's a snowstorm? What if ... EEK!
