TMAS in Babble's Top 100 Children's Books!

I just found out Tell Me a Secret has been listed among Babble's Top 100 Best Children's Books(!!)

Author Melissa Taylor says about TMAS:

Although it’s about Rand, a pregnant 17-year-old, this book is not like any other pregnant-teen story I’ve read. The characters and the backstory are so well developed that you can’t help but be drawn into the emotional turbulence of Rand’s life.

To say that I am pleased would be a huge understatement. I am honored that Babble would consider my book among such favorites as Wintergirls, The House of the Scorpion, The Outsiders, and The Book Thief.

Thank you, Melissa and Babble!

  1. Holly, I'm so happy for you. Even though I just met you briefly at the 2010 SCBWI-WA conference, I'm beginning to feel like I can say that I knew you when:)
