OMG, I have enjoyed being the book of the month. What an honor! Thank you, Scott. Thank you, LivreAmour. Thank you, readers. It has been my privilege to serve.

My goal with Forever Twelve was to capture middle school fantasy--what if parents were approachable? What if school was fun? What if there were no bullies, lurking around every corner, waiting to steal your lunch money?

I had an awful time in middle school. First of all, I was butt ugly. (I have the yearbook photos to prove it.) Second of all, I had to wake up at 5:45 in the morning--at the age of eleven!!--to catch a first-run bus. Third, my parents chose that time of my life to get divorced, which I was fine with--but they weren't. (Get along, people!) Fourth, I had to share a bedroom in our new house with my 4-year-old sister, who regularly used her fingernails as weapons. I could go on and on.

Anyway, it's a harsh reality of life that most people suffer miserably in middle school. So I wanted to create a middle school fantasy world of the way it was meant to be (in my idealized view of life). I'm glad that so many of you enjoyed reading it! Amazon seems to be the site that works for me, so follow me there for sequels!

And now I'll pass the torch to the author of Paper Towns, Mr. Green! :arrow: :mrgreen:

Thank you! Two are available individually for preorder, but I need to write two more after that to have a full-sized, four-part sequel! :-)
