So I was lucky enough to attend the YALSA Symposim on YA Lit this past weekend in Albuquerque, NM, where I finally met Brighton HS grad, Allen Zadoff! If you haven’t read his HILARIOUS novel, FOOD, GIRLS, AND OTHER THINGS I CAN’T HAVE yet, you must if you want to laugh. The scene during soccer in gym class? SO FUNNY!

Anyway, here’s a pic of Allen and me; one of authors Selene Castrovilla, Terry Trueman, and me; and Lauren Myracle and Ellen Hopkins.  Such a great conference! Check out these authors’ excellent books.
