I haven't been great about keeping track of links that feature Don't Touch, but I promise to be better. Here are some of my favorites from the past few weeks!
Kody Keplinger of Disability in Kidlit interviewed me, asking some tough, thoughtful questions about writing OCD and my own experience with it. I really enjoyed this interview and send extra-special thanks to Corinne Duyvis, author of Otherbound, for setting it up and to We Need Diverse Books for sharing it around!
Young Adult Hollywood featured Don't Touch as a Most Anticipated Book! I'm honored.
I visited Nikki Wang at Fiction Freak with a Get Your Debut On feature. I played the Essence Game with Caddie and Peter and found out a lot about how they see each other.
Back in June, The Bookish Owl spotlighted Don't Touch with a roundup of some nice Goodreads reviews.
School Library Journal said Don't Touch “Offers a good look at Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders." They also included Don't Touch in this roundup of What's Hot in YA . . . I was excited to see several fellow VCFAers and OneFour Kidlit peeps there as well!
And Kirkus Reviews said Caddie's "story effectively highlights how anxiety disorders and the stigma of mental illness affect teens," calling it "An insightful look at anxiety disorders and letting go of fear."
News, events, fun stuff, serious stuff, and online doings. I kept a personal blog for years at The Storybook Girl, and I'll slowly be migrating some of those posts to this blog.
