Here in Austin for the Texas Library Association conference this week. Read BOY PROOF tonight at the hotel. Loved it! It has been nominated for Quick Picks and I can just envision the kids (girls) who will love this quirky book with its combination of Francesca Lia Block meets Carolyn Mackler meets Janet Tashjian. I hope that I am not making this book appear at all derivative as it is not so in the least. Instead, it is a fresh voice with great fleshy characters and an all too real school setting with some smart kids, bunches of geeks, teachers who seem to be smart and cool. I think I would have loved attending school with Egg and her pals. Cannot wait to see what galleys might lurk in the exhibit hall. Will check in later in the week if I get the chance.
