Congratulations to Simone and to Flux - I just saw the top ten list!!!
Laurie's Blue is for Nightmares was the first teen book I ever worked on (and only a little bit) and I believe she was also the first from Llewellyn to get nominated for Teen Top Ten. So, it's rather appropriate that she was the bearer of good news.
