Something Cool For A Friday Afternoon

So, here's a cool thing.

Today on her blog, Robin Benway showed off the new paperback cover for The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June.

Cute, huh? I really liked the hardback cover, but this one captures the personalities of these sisters so well. 

Well, the back of the paperback is covered with quotes about the book from bloggers.

I was looking at all the quotes and I couldn't believe it...MY quote made the back of the book. In fact, it's up at the top with the blurbs from Kirkus and Booklist and Publishers Weekly, like it's important or something.

I used to have a book blog that I loved (and it's now gone...sad), but it's nice to know that my quote lives on right there on the back of Robin's book. It's hardly my most eloquent review of a book, but WOW...this totally made my day. Especially because I think Robin is particularly awesome and I really did adore this book.

Hopefully this won't be the closest I get to seeing my name on a published YA book, but it will totally do for now.


  1. How cool is that, up there with Kirkus and PW! I miss your book blog...

  2. That is so cool!! Congrats :)

  3. Yay! I have faith that that's NOT the closest you'll get.

  4. That is so neat! And I'm sure you'll see your name on a book one day as the author:)

  5. That is SO cool! Now I'm even more disappointed about missing out on your book blog.

    I've been wanting to read APRIL, MAY & JUNE for awhile. Now that it's coming out in paperback I'll definitely have to pick it up.

  6. Ahhhh! I love it! So cool, Jessica! And don't you doubt it; your name is going to be the only name on the FRONT of a book. And SOON!

  7. That is sooo awesome! And I can't wait for your book to come out. I'll definitely buy it ;)

  8. That is SOOOO freaking cool!! congrats!!
    Sounds like a good book, do you rec it for me? PS-I really enjoyed Lock & Key, SD is a fantastic writer.

  9. What an amazing thing to see on the back of a book!!! How cool! I found out just the other day I'd be mentioned in the acknowledgements of a book and I'm over the moon for it!!!

    Congratulations! This book was already on my list but now I want to read it even more!
