The Expedition Log

High-res Thanks so, so much to everyone who came out for The Expeditioners’ launch on Saturday. My favorite part of the day was getting to put the book in the hands of actual kids, kids who told me all about what books they were reading and why they liked or didn’t like them. When I’m writing, I have this kid in mind, a kid a lot like the kid I was, and I try to write for that kid, always thinking about whether that kid is going to find something exciting or funny or interesting. And then, on Saturday, I got to look that (those) kid (s) in the eye and say, “Here you go. I hope you like it.” 
Cool.
