Review: Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik

This is one of the best modernizations of Pride and Prejudice I’ve found! The dialogue is hilariously realistic, the characters are so well done, and the story is just plain fun regardless of whether or not you’re obsessed with Austen. Read more…

Author Q&A: Keir Graff

The Matchstick Castle was such a fun middle grade story (it even reminded me a bit of The Goonies). The book came out last week, so author Keir Graff stopped by to share some of his thoughts! Read more…
