Heard this at this week’s Random House Children’s Fall Preview, from the out-of-the-box mind of Newbery Winner Rebecca Stead, (paraphrasing.. I hope it’s not too off,) “Is it possible to completely eliminate the dark moments in Middle School years? The answer is probably, no. Is it possible to build a true friendship upon lies? The answer is, YES.” Now I’m totally intrigued. Liar and Spy is coming out this August. Looking forward.
