Publication is just around the corner and I figured I'd get a thread posted so I can share newsy news. First up - I GOT A BLURB FROM RICHARD PECK!

“Tracy Holczer’s story is a lyric about love and loss and not being able to find your future until you’ve uncovered your past.”—Richard Peck, author of Newbery winning A Year Down Yonder

Galleys are being made with a smaller clip of the quote on the cover. Oh, and I HAVE A COVER! I will be revealing it on YABC in a couple of weeks with a giveaway. Stay tuned!
