Tomorrow is a Big Day!

Tomorrow is a BIG day!  Tomorrow is the day that Kirby Larson's new book The Friendship Doll comes out!  I read this book a few months ago and I adore it.  Now, with the entire world about to read this book, I feel very protective.  Kind of like sending my child off to school for the first time... Will they like it?  Will they love it?  Will they be mean to it and bully it? (Not possible, by the way!)  Will people appreciate it like I do?  This isn't even MY book and I am worked up- I can only imagine how Kirby feels on this- the eve of her book release.  There is no turning back now, girl!  I am sending good vibes your way! 

My copy just shipped from Amazon about 2 hours ago!  I hope you get a chance to read this book very soon!  Put a hold on it at the library, buy it at the book store, download it on your Nook... your daughters and granddaughters will love this book.  After you read it, please leave a post here at The Lemme Library.  If you would like a sneak peek, read my review here. Oh- and please remember where you read it first- this is a Newbery 2011 contender....

  1. Lol...I think I will get a copy? Yes and yes! I am a huge fan of Hattie Big Sky, and this one sounds like it will be right up there. Nice on the Newbery contender...
