"Scars" is on my Bookshelf

As you might have seen on Twitter or around the blogosphere (a word I've never actually used before - am I ten years late?),  SCARS by Cheryl Rainfield was challenged at a public library recently, and subjected to review by the librarians there. (More info here .)

On February 8, I found out I'd won a copy of SCARS off Twitter, from a contest sponsored by WestSide Books. They publish edgy, contemporary realistic YA fiction and their catalog looks intriguing and powerful. Per their instructions, I sent them my address and recieved my copy of the book in the mail yesterday, only to find out about the controversy. Now I feel compelled to buy one as well, and perhaps donate the one I got for free to my local library, particularly if they don't yet have a copy.


  1. Oh, thank you, Sarah! I am delighted to hear that. You are a sweetheart!

  2. My pleasure, Cheryl, and thanks for commenting! I'm wishing you a swift resolution to the issue and looking forward to reading SCARS.

  3. Aww, I know! Cheryl's awesome.

    Hello fellow Angeleno! Saw that you're Roni's agency mate and had to come say hello.

  4. Hi Sophia, thanks for stopping by! I always love to meet other L.A. writers and Roni is awesome :)
