Hi, All,

It's always fun to celebrate with the Blue Boarders, since we all know what this journey that we share together can be like--the ups and downs and turn-arounds...

I am over the moon with this review of SECRETS IN TRANSLATION, my newest YA novel, set in Italy,  from the Punahou Bulletin, Winter 2018, (Honolulu, Hawaii), where our daughters went to school and where I taught:

"A great story transports you away from the everyday, and in her new young adult novel, Margo Sorenson sends readers into a world of intrigue, romance and self-discovery in Positano, Italy."—Christine Thomas, Punahou Bulletin, Winter 2018

You can read the full review here:
https://bulletin.punahou.edu/article/~board/bulletin-articles/post/puns-in-print-for-winter-2018

As a funny side-note note of explanation, "Puns" in the "Puns in Print" refers to people who went to Punahou or taught there...not the giggle-inducing type of "puns"! :palmtree

I hope you get a smile from mix of "aloha" --love and all associated with it  in Hawaii---with "abbracci"--hugs in Italian.

Aloha and grazie,
Tori :pizza :palmtree
