My book: for real

Look what arrived in the mail! Advance reader copies!! My student Ava was here when they arrived and we tore the package open and exclaimed “Oh my gosh!” at least seventy times each. Even though I am holding a book–a real book–in my hands, it’s hard to believe it’s actually mine.

Artist Maike Plenzke did an incredible job with the cover! The colors!
