Liar & Spy was released last week. At times, I wasn't sure this one would make it. There have been some stuff-of-dreams reviews, the kind that make me wonder how I got lucky enough to have just the right kind of reader assigned to write the review (because no book is for everyone). And I just got the pretty amazing news that it's on the New York Times bestseller list (chapter books for children). Does this feel good? It feels terrific. In fact, I want to run around thanking every human being who bought it. If you are a human being, and you bought it, or asked for it at a library, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
P.S. I love this startlingly sincere advice from Amy Poehler about dealing with an acutely embarrassing moment. I wish she'd been there when I farted in front of everyone at gymnastics camp. It has nothing to do with books, though.
