The little book that could - Shock Point

Today is the on-sale day for the paperback of Shock Point.

This is the little book that could. It didn't get very many reviews, and some of them, like PW, were only online. But even so, it was a:
- YALSA Quick Pick
- New York Public Library's Books for the Teen Age
- Pennsylvania Readers' Choice finalist
- Named to Tayshas (Texas state award)
- Finalist for Teens Top 10

What I loved about YAs is there is time for word of mouth to build. For adult books, you've got a window of about eight weeks after publication. And now Shock Point is a paperback (not always a given), which means that real teens can actually afford it!
