Betting on Scorpions (aka the post with the swearing librarian in it.)
Happy news! On Friday, the OLA announced their “Best Bets” list, and THE SCORPION RULES was named one of the ten best young adult books in Canada.
I didn’t get to go, but I had informants who were at the announcement: "Erin, they RAVED about your book. In fact, the committee member in the photo was SO enthusiastic about your book that she said something like, “Do you guys mind if I use the s-word? I really need to use the s-word. HOLY S***, this book was SO GOOD!!!”
Dear anonymous librarian: I debated blogging this because I don’t want to embarrass you, but finally I had to. I have never been more flattered by the s-word in my life.
