1. I polished up my book review of The Rejected Body and it is posted today at FWD/Forward.

2. I got an ARC of A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend by Emily Horner, and I finished reading it today. I got it from the author, [personal profile] owlectomy. This book is great and I recommend it, especially if you are into YA literature. This book has FOUR gay/queer characters, and some discussion of coming out and identity! It has bike riding! It has a play called Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad! It has Quakers! What else do you need to know? Oh also, it has an interesting alternating-chapter structure that makes it a real page-turner. What a wonderful book, and my only regret is that I didn't have this book when I was 15.

I'm glad you liked it! In lots of ways I was writing what I needed to hear when I was 15, too.

That's because my brain is juicy and big, and the book is a zombie.

How did I miss this chance to say how much I loved your Wendell review? Better late than never, I guess.
