The interview I didn't see coming
A while back, a friend of mine told me that his eighth-grade daughter was reading my book. I was flattered and concerned given certain passages/colorful language 😬 but he was okay with it, and off she read. What surprised me more was her request to interview me as part of her “great book” project for her English class. (Still can’t believe it.) With her permission, I'm posting an excerpt from her final Interview Reflection.
When I asked what prompted her to read my book, she said she saw it on her dad’s table and asked him what it was about. “Once I asked him, it just seemed too interesting not to read it.”
Thank you, Stella. To have you take an interest in my story is a surprise and delight. ❤️
