“When I started reading it, I thought it would just be a fun book to read and a fun column to write. I certainly didn’t think I would get emotional. Because I’m an adult now, and if there’s one thing adults don’t do, it’s eat a piece of pie for breakfast. And if there’s another thing adults don’t do, it’s get weepy over a Lurlene McDaniel book. But you know what, you guys? I did both of those things this week. Because as it turns out, reading Don’t Die, My Love wasn’t the laugh-a-minute thrill I thought it would be.”
Oh, that? That’s just a really cool thing I wrote on the internet for all to see. I really did have pie for breakfast this week. It was pumpkin, and I’m not ashamed.
Give this week’s Young Adult Education a read if you ever read Lurlene McDaniel or just stared at the covers of her books in the library, like I did. Were/are any of you guys big Lurlene fans?
