Big news! Kirkus Reviews gave A TRUE WONDER a .
Now, if you’re not in publishing (like my kids) one star might not seem like much.
But book reviews aren’t like Yelp or Amazon ratings. With Kirkus, you get either a starred review or just a plain old review with no star at all. So, I’ll take the star!
If you have a subscription to Kirkus, you can read the full review here.
As a reminder, you can preorder A TRUE WONDER wherever books are sold. If you order through Once Upon A Time Bookstore in Montrose, you’ll get a signed book plus free art postcard from Katy Wu.
And, if you’d like a chance to be entered to win the A TRUE WONDER tee shirt, sign up for my newsletter and let me know you’ve preordered the book from any store.
