They made a trailer for I CRAWL THROUGH IT, a book I thought was completely trailer-proof.
I was having an amazing day heading to NCTE/ALAN (More on that soon) and just when I thought things couldn't get better, the awesome Anthony Breznican interviewed me and BAM! Next thing you know the trailer was released on Entertainment Weekly with the interview....just as I was walking on stage at ALAN with Andrew Smith on Monday.
Wanna see the whole EW piece with the trailer?

Just want to see the trailer?
Here you go.
Isn't it awesome?
If I was to recap NCTE/ALAN, we'd be here all day. I have line edits to do, you have more important things to do, too. So I'll share a few pictures.
|I love seeing Laurie Halse Anderson. She is the awesome.|
What follow are Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award pictures.
Sometimes this all moves too fast for me. I don't expect anyone to read my books, like them, or give two hoots about their existence. So it's always surprising and really delightful when something great happens to a book. Glory O'Brien's History of the Future won the Walden Award this year and this was a great panel (filled with my idols!) and a great day. I reckon it's nice to remember great days, so here are a few pictures.

The Walden committee and the finalists--missing is Michael Williams, who sent
a lovely message to us all from South Africa.

On my last night in Minneapolis, I watched Ellen Hopkins get picked apart by that vulture.
No I didn't.
But this picture was too weird not to share.
While these are pictures of friends and events, the most important thing about NCTE/ALAN are the teachers who dedicate their lives to students. There is a reason this is my favorite conference of the year--and it's those teachers. Education is the most important job in the world and I am so proud to call so many hard-working teachers my friends.
In other news, I CRAWL THROUGH IT has landed on The Horn Book's best books of 2015 list, which is a huge honor, as well as BookPage's best books of 2015. And there is more news to come on that front.
Now, back to line edits and stuff like that.
It's December already.
Enjoy the holiday season in whatever way you do and I'll see you around here soon.
