No Big Deal

Kidding, HUGE deal!

I was so excited to see CRENSHAW by Katherine Applegate on Netgalley today because it is one of my most anticipated reads of the year.  I mean, just look at that cover!!

And the synopsis is killer, makes me tear up just reading it:

In her first novel since winning the Newbery Medal, Katherine Applegate delivers an unforgettable and magical story about family, friendship, and resilience.

Jackson and his family have fallen on hard times. There's no more money for rent. And not much for food, either. His parents, his little sister, and their dog may have to live in their minivan. Again.

Crenshaw is a cat. He's large, he's outspoken, and he's imaginary. He has come back into Jackson's life to help him. But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everything?

Beloved author Katherine Applegate proves in unexpected ways that friends matter, whether real or imaginary.
So, I tweeted my excitement.And wow, Katherine Applegate tweeted me back!  Here's the proof:

Yes, that's my name that she tweeted.  No big deal!


  1. I saw it on NetGalley last night,but hadn't heard anything about it. Where have I been?! Sounds good- my students were totally in love with The One and Only Ivan this year so Crenshaw will be exciting for them.

  2. I've seen this one, and I love her books! What fun for you!!!

  3. I like the synopsis and how cute is that cover? Gonna see if I have any luck with NetGalley. Authors commenting back are so cool, and such fun.
