Kudos to NPR because Okay For Now is a great book. Here is what I said about Wednesday Wars and Okay For Now back in 2011:
Great stories, great characters, imaginative settings and clear writing make these two books great reads. I highly recommend them.
What is the Backseat Book Club you ask? Here you go:
If you’re a kid who likes to read, we want to hear from you! Every month, we’ll pick a Backseat Book Club selection. We hope you’ll read it and send in your questions. At month’s end, we’ll put some of your questions to the book’s author during our afternoon radio program, All Things Considered. Follow us on Twitter @NPRBackseat.
So if you know of kids who would like to participate, they can submit questions here.
And for all you Twitter folks, this from the publisher:
We’ll be tweeting about OKAY FOR NOW in the weeks leading up to Gary’s “All Things Considered” interview at the end of February, sharing our favorite moments and quotes from the book with the hashtag #OK4NOW. Please share your own favorites! Our Twitter handle is @HMHKids. We’ll also be offering books for giveaway— OKAY FOR NOW is being released in paperback this month, with a brand new jacket.
So if you haven’t read the book(s) now is the time, and send in some questions and follow the conversation on Twitter. All the cool kids are doing it …
