HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of our favorite books, AUDITION by Stasia Ward Kehoe

This is the email I sent to Stasia Ward Kehoe after I finished reading her amazing debut novel, AUDITION:

Oh. My. God. AUDITION is absolutely gorgeous! I have to admit, this is the first novel in verse I've ever read and I wasn't really sure how I'd feel about it going in. I'm not a huge poetry person, but I absolutely loved every single word. I'm in awe of you. Truly. Thank you so much for sharing the book with me. I can't wait to give it to Laura. She's going to LOVE IT!

AUDITION is one of those books you'll devour, but if you're anything like me you'll keep marking pages of passages that you absolutely must go back and re-read. And then you'll have to loan out your dog eared copy to all of your friends because it's one of those books that you finish and then you immediately want everyone else read so you can sit around and obsess over every word.

I would LOVE to win this book! Sorry I'm so late to the game, I haven't been able to be on much today because I'm having to do therapy with baby girl all day long for torticollis. :( I could really use a great read to help distract me from all the stress going on right now. All my sisters are dancers (one has a masters in ballet and choreography and one is getting her bachelors in ballet performance right now), so I would love to pass it along to them too. I HOPE I WIN!!!! :D
