Last Wednesday I came home to a package from Random House. I hoped against hope that it would contain a copy of FIREFIGHT by Brandon Sanderson, a book I desperately wanted. And it did! I was so excited and kind of shocked. I don't really have a contact at Random House but had emailed a few people hoping against hope that it would get to someone who could help me (or not).
Finally, I connected with Rachel who forwarded the email to someone who was able to help me and Viola! I got myself a shiny new copy.
I am still buying a few copies for my library but I can't even have this copy here at school because there are a few readers who would happily pry it out of my hands--and I am not done yet!
