Good news! May's reading list just got a whole lot better...

Has this ever happened to you? You finish reading a good novel and then... you just can't seem to find another one you're even remotely excited about? Well, it happens to me, as it did yesterday, and then I remembered that fellow author and good friend, Jacquelyn Mitchard, has a new one out!

Based on a true story, All We Know of Heaven was released last week. It's the sort of novel that will move readers of all ages. Like all of Jackie's stories, this one grabs you by the throat and immediately makes you want to run out and buy a few copies for gifts.

I tried, but couldn't copy her video clip about it over onto my blog, but it's great, so take 20 seconds, click on this link and go listen to it. It's an incredible pitch (Jackie never does anything that isn't top notch -- ie., I'm always green with envy when I look at her website.) Happy May reading everyone!

I'm quite sure I
read about this story.
Very sad/terrifying to
think about.

The book sounds great--thanks for the recommendation.

I really liked that
video clip! Sounds like it's
a compelling story.

I just visited her blog.
This book sounds great! And she wrote "Deep End of the Ocean." So I know I'm going to cry a lot.

Thanks for the heads up!
