  1. So excited to see Hawk Rising here!!! I can't wait for The Brilliant Deep as well as Saving Fiona--such a sweet cover.

    Loved the first Two Truths book, and this one looks equally wonderful.

    Huge fan of Barb Rosenstock's books--Otis & Will looks fabulous too, and Steve Jenkins & Robin Page are perennial favorites and they're so prolific!
