I've known for some time that my book is comparable in style to others written by Wendy Mass, Helene Boudreau, and Lauren Myracle. As writers, we are expected to be able to name other books that our own compare to in order to provide a point of reference to inquiring editors, publishers, agents, and fellow readers. But it is nice to see that mathematical statistics and processing software at Amazon back up that kind of "soft" appraisal.
Thus, if you're wondering what kind of book you might get next for your middle-grade reader, perhaps you might find a treasure or two below. Does she identify with tween angst? Tween friendship dilemmas? Perhaps a bit of magic? Or, a tidbit of budding romance? All with some humor thrown in? Well, then this list is for you, courtesy of screen captures from my phone.
And Happy Valentine's Day, too.
