Patry Francis--The Liar's Diary

So, I know this blog is called Yapping about YA and you would probably assume it's going to be about young adult lit, but today's a special occasion. All over the internet, writers are uniting to promote the super amazing Patry Francis. Her book, The Liar's Diary, is out today.

Here's the thing, though--Ms. Francis, after selling her book, was diagnosed with cancer, and doesn't have the energy to do the promotion.

So hundreds of writers are banding together to make sure The Liar's Diary gets the promotion it deserves.

Here's a bit of the synopsis, from her site (http://www.patryfrancis.com/):

What would you do if your best friend was murdered—and your teenaged son was accused of the crime? How far would you go to protect him? How many lies would you tell? Would you dare to admit the darkest truths—even to yourself?

And here's the link to The Liar's Diary on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Liars-Diary-Patry-Francis/dp/0452289157/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201642645&sr=8-1

Here's to you, Patry!

Went by Waldenbooks today, but they didn't have it! I asked them to order a copy (and since I know the guy who works there, they're going to order a few more!)

I found Patry's blog and cried reading some of her posts. I ordered her book from Amazon today!

Someone I know on another forum manages a bookstore. She's going to order some extra copies and put them at the front of the store.
