I’m ending 2012 with some awesome book news! Through Her Eyes was selected to be on the 2013 Tayshas High School Reading List!
A little (humble) bragging, if I may: Here’s a little snippet from the notification I received from the Texas Library Association. “The Tayshas reading list highlights the best fiction and non-fiction books for Texas teens. It is one of the most respected state reading lists in the country…”
How cool is that?!
Some of my all-time favorite books and authors have been on the Tayshas list in the past. Here are just a few:
SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson
JOY SCHOOL by Elizabeth Berg
PLACES I NEVER MEANT TO BE by Judy Blume
MOONLIGHT BECOMES YOU by Mary Higgins Clark
DREAMLAND by Sarah Dessen
LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green
INCANTATION by Alice Hoffman
