What a WONDERFUL post and story, Joan! I too applaud everyone involved -- the project girls, their parents, and their teacher.

Also wanted to cheer *you* -- I'm behind on my NY Times Book Reviews and have just thrilled to the Sept 16 review of 'Almost Home' and its praise for your work. Can't wait to read it myself.

Take care xxoo C and C across the Pond

I am one of the project girls parents.. They made the cupcakes and dyed the aprons here at my house.. They got 100%.. I am so proud of them and thank you for inspiring them. My daughter is so happy to have seen your blog. Thank you so much for replying and not just shrugging them off.


Joan I give you a standing ovation because even though your busy with books you took the time to do this for and write back and then you made a blog about this..wow Joan you have amazing personalities..

Marla -- Youve got one special girl there. It was my absolute pleasure to work with her. I do hope your sink survived. -- Joan

Sierra Bloom

Joan you are a major inspiration for me....You are a rolemodel. A complete rolemodel. Without your book and you as an author I dont know what I would do.... You write amazing and I can just connect with the characters....
