Three years later, I’m writing my first nonfiction book, How To Keep Your Daughter From Slamming the Door: An Awesome Mom Handbook, which will be out later this year. I considered my newest gem to be a complete departure from my previous YA books… or, so I thought until today when my comments to my fiction fan created an echo in my head.
Hey, I hope you aren’t sitting there saying to yourself, “Well, that’s not my school.” These schools were from the south, from the north, from the inner city, from rural areas, from affluent communities, and from poor communities, and all in the good ol’ USA. The students were from more races/ethnicities than you can name. Some of them were just like kids you know. I’m telling you the people in your school would produce close to the same results.
