Update on the Class of 2k8

Here it is, mid-April, and I have yet to give some major shout-outs to my fabulous classmates in the Class of 2k8.  If you'll scroll down to the "Class of 2k8" entry below, you'll see all the folks who are in this marketing group with me, and their wonderful books, too.  And of course, you can always hop over to the Class's blog:

As of right now, the following books are available:

-A Difficult Boy by M.P. Barker.  Just released earlier this month.  On my "must-read" list.  Gotta love historical fiction, yo!
-A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce.  Currently reading it and LOVING it.  Nominated for an ALA/YALSA best book of the year.  A retelling of "Rumplestiltskin."  It's glorious.
-The Gollywhopper Games by Jody Feldman.  Ditto that nomination of best book of the year from ALA/YALSA.  This one is on my nightstand now.  I'm getting my pencils sharpened so I can play along with all the games and riddles inside.
-Braless in Wonderland by Debbie Reed Fischer.  Out this week, folks!  Gotta get this one; it's a behind-the-scenes look at Miami's modeling industry.  Yummy fun!
-The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher.  A Spring 08 Booksense Pick.  I devoured this one in two sittings.  Alice, the main character, is my kind of gal.  Get it, y'all.  You're gonna love it.
-I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder.  A novel-in-verse, which I adore.  And so do others, as it was just named an ALA Quick Pick.  Yip!
-The Lucky Place by Zu Vincent.  Just out earlier this month, so I haven't read it yet, but it's also on my "must-read" list.  It sounds positively lovely.

More updates later, as the accolades continue and the launches keep coming!  Yay, Class of 2kgr8!
