I had a chance to go back and read your query. Wow. No wonder three agents made offers! This sounds like a truly lovely book. I'll definitely be adding it to my to-read list when some lucky publisher gets their act together and publishes it!

So I'm browsing through the Blueboards after being away for a while, and I see AmandaSue signed with an agent, and I'm all  :yay and  :stars3 because I remember being in the trench with AmandaSue from way back. And then ... I saw who you signed with and I'm like  :idea I finally made the connection. I DID NOT KNOW YOU WERE AMANDA FROM PW!!! (Okay, so I'm a bit slow at times...heh.) So anyway... let me say again:  :congratulations
