Look who was in PW's fall highlights

PW must have asked all the houses what books on their fall lists they wanted to plug. The result was a long, long list.

But right smack dab in the middle was this:
MACMILLAN/HENRY HOLT/OTTAVIANO
Christy Ottaviano Books puts on a happy face for Birdy’s Smile Book by Laurie Keller, a picture-book exploration of smiling; Welcome to Monster Town by Ryan Heshka, a spooky romp featuring Dr. Cyclops and Frank N. Stein; Girl, Stolen by April Henry, a thriller about a blind girl who is kidnapped;Are You Scared Yet? Haunted Houses by Robert D. San Souci, 10 tales about untraditional haunted houses; and Cool Robots by Sean Kenney, a compendium of LEGO creations.

Yeah! I love Girl, Stolen. I wrote it while I was still working full time, but for a variety of reasons it did not find a home right away. Now, not only does it have a home, it's loved. That's every author's dream, and I'm lucky to be living it. I can't wait until October.
