Excellent review for Carrie Jones

The Web site Mombians is featuring a review of Carrie Jones' Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend. The review originally appeared in GLBT New England newspaper Bay Windows.

It's a a positive and very perceptive review with a perspective on the book that's a bit different than what we typically hear from the kidlit review crowd. I really like her last paragraph:
"Read it and enjoy, then get your local library and high school to stock it. It may help open hearts and minds in a way that mandatory diversity seminars can’t. More than that, though, it’s also just an insightful, funny read about first love and first heartbreak. All of us, gay, straight, bi, and questioning, can relate to that."

Great review! I have ordered my copy on amazon, and can't wait to read it! It looks like a really fantastic book.

ps-my book signing in S.F. went very well. The book sold out--woo hoo!

That review highlighted the value of the book, beyond it being a good read.
