Friday before last, I spoke on a panel at the National YALSA Conference about trends in LGBT teen lit. I had a fab time meeting librarians that have passion around diverse books.
I did a guest post about the experience at Lee Wind’s blog–I’M HERE. I’M QUEER. WHAT THE HELL DO I READ? Go there to read all the fun details.
One of the best parts was meeting up with other authors I know only from conferences or online. We could (and did) talk and laugh for hours!

Cynthea bought a bottle of wine for us all to share, but we never managed to get it open with our cheap corkscrew. Oh well. We look so sad, right?

SECRETS OF TRUTH AND BEAUTY by Megan Frazer captured me from the first page. It’s a poignant, sometimes funny, and very real story of a girl who runs away from her controlling parents to find her sister, a sister her parents hid from her. As you know, I love stories about sisters. And the setting, a boarding house for misfits, was unusual, yet perfect for the story.
