Gamer Girl in Associated Press article!

Gamer Girl got a nice mention in an AP article today on Scholastic Book Fairs. Pretty cool!

You can read the whole article here. But here's the blurb for my part:

They purchased Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" novels, the latest "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and Linda Gerber's "Death by Latte," a mystery set in part at a Seattle coffee shop. Ashley Zhang, another seventh grader, bought Mari Mancusi's "Gamer Girl," featuring a lonely high-schooler who becomes a star when playing online games.

"I borrowed it from a friend and thought it was fascinating. I like that it's about a girl who really wants to fit into the world," Zhang says.

So exciting! I will be sure that Gamer Girl gets special treatment when the Scholastic Book Fair visits our school library.
