Oh. Em. Gee.

I don't know if you've heard about this or not (most likely, you have), but I was quoted on the back of the paperback copy of Audrey, Wait! (: Last night, my mom, brother, grandma, and I stalked the nearest Barnes and Noble trying to find a copy, and then bought all three copies they had. My mom wanted one, I wanted one, and the library wanted one, lol.

My mom tutors at the library from three until eight pretty much Monday through Thursday, and I also volunteer there, so they know us pretty well. When my mom told the library director, she was getting all excited, and she was like, "You have to get me that ISBN number... we need to order it now! That's amazing!" and she was getting all excited, haha. And then she told me I should sign it. But. Uhm. Maybe? lol.

And then when we were checking out at the B&N my grandma was getting all excited, and to all the cashiers, she was like, "Yeah, see that quote right there? The one that says it's by Hope's Bookshelf? That's my granddaughter right here." haha.

So. Yeah. I have a picture of me with the book in the B&N, but you can't really see the quote, so the quote says: "Audrey, Wait! is now one of my favorite books." Whooo! I still cannot believe that I am quoted on the back...



hope.
