Carrie got Quick Pick’d!

I have to give a big shout-out to my good friend CG Watson whose debut novel, “Quad,” was named a 2008 Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers by the American Library Association (ALA).

This puts her in mighty fine company: the amazing Laurie Halse Anderson’s “Twisted” and Sara Zarr’s “Story of a Girl” (both of which I highly recommend along with “Quad”) were also Quick Picks so you can see how fantastic this is for Carrie.

If you haven’t already done so, please check out “Quad.” If it’s not in your local store or library, just ask. Those booksellers and librarians are super nice people and they would just love to get it for you. And if you ask for it, you’ll be giving other people the chance to read it too.

So, kudos to Carrie! Congrats! Felicitations! However you want to say it, it means we are so proud of you.

Your Hollywood connection,
