Yesterday I had the great honor to be the guest speaker at my friend Nell's 12th birthday party. Several weeks ago Nell's mom bought copies of my new book for all 13 guests; they came to the party yesterday having read the book and full of wonderful questions. I've been the guest at quite a few mom daughter book group meetings, but this was my first birthday party. Nell, I think you're so cool. And your friends are terrific, too. You all asked great questions! I can't wait to see what you do with your life. Thanks for having me. And I love this cake. Can you believe someone was able to put the cover of my book on a cake?? So cool!!
