And now a few notes from some of the characters in Talent:
A NOTE FROM SANDEE: It’s almost time for homecoming. I’m excited, but I am already home. Why do they call it homecoming.
A NOTE FROM ROB: It’s Friday and my mom has the late shift again. Party at my house.
A NOTE FROM TESSA: I sold a painting! Can you believe it?
A NOTE FROM JENN: I’m going to see out with Pete tonight. He’s new and he said I looked cute while I was eating my salad at lunch. I hope…
A NOTE FROM DIEGO: Downloading songs.
A NOTE FROM Mrs. G: Scenes are due Monday.

Congratulations! How exciting, I am so happy for you. I enjoyed the book. All your years working with teens showed.
Thanks, Kathy. I was delighted, and so was Sandee Mason. Would love to see your review on Amazon and Goodreads, if you are so inclined.
I know awards aren’t always a measure of our good work, but Sandee feels validated and so do I. If you haven’t read Talent, there’s no time like the present. https://www.amazon.com/Talent-B-Lynn-Goodwin/dp/1629293350/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1450916910&sr=8-1&keywords=9781629293356 (Cut and paste)
