I am honored that Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute is on the Autumn '09 Indie Next List.
What is the Indie Next List? This is from the American Booksellers Association:
The Indie Next List, drawn from bookseller-recommended favorite handsells, epitomizes the heart and soul of passionate bookselling. Independent booksellers are and have always been discoverers of the next big thing, the next great read, the next bestseller, and the next undiscovered gem.

Also among the honorees on the fall '09 list are the powerful works of friends Grace Lin (Where the Mountain Meets the Moon), David Levithan (Love is the Higher Law), Peter McCarty (Jeremy Draws a Monster) and Libba Bray (Going Bovine). I am proud to be among thee!
