A First Review for Eaglebait back-in-print

Check out a great first review for Eaglebait by writing colleague Becky Mushko. (Her latest middle school book, Stuck, is available from Cedar Creek Publishing.)
In her Eaglebait review, Becky nails the themes: bullies in the schools, self-esteem, working out problems and finding the real people in life for role models. Because Eaglebait was written 20 years ago, some of the bullying methods may have changed. But bullies themselves? No Way! They're still hateful and mean and they hurt their victims so many ways. Thanks, Becky. I'm looking forward to returning the favor in this space soon!
Becky's Web site, with a complete list of her writings can be found here.

My first signing takes place Thursday, June 9 at the Franklin County Library Westlake branch at 6:30. If you're in the vicinity, come hear me read and discuss Eaglebait. Books will be available for signing. Hope to see many of you there, for moral support, if nothing else!
