GAMER GIRL mentioned in AP article!

Gamer Girl got a nice mention today in an Associated Press article on Scholastic Book Fairs. Pretty cool!!! Hopefully lots of newspapers will run the story.

You can read the whole article here. But here's the blurb for my part:

They purchased Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" novels, the latest "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and Linda Gerber's "Death by Latte," a mystery set in part at a Seattle coffee shop. Ashley Zhang, another seventh grader, bought Mari Mancusi's "Gamer Girl," featuring a lonely high-schooler who becomes a star when playing online games.

"I borrowed it from a friend and thought it was fascinating. I like that it's about a girl who really wants to fit into the world," Zhang says.



Yay for Ashley Zhang!!! Ashley, if you're reading this - email me or leave me a comment and I'll send you something special! I'm so honored that you mentioned GAMER GIRL to the reporter and want to thank you! :)
