Gayle came to A GREAT GOOD PLACE for BOOKS a quaint book store that sold over 100 copies of IF I STAY. Gayle was there to promote the the paperback release of IF I STAY and she gave a presenntation that was a mixture of select reading passages combined with musical selections mentioned in the book. I was left speechless and with a bit teary eyed and I was reminded of why I loved this book. Not only did I get to see Gayle but I also had the pleasure to hang with my friend Amanda, fellow blogger Alicia and 3 other bay area authors Jandy Nelson, Yvonne Prinze and Nina LaCoeur. One of the best bits of the night was Gayle's occasional slips about the sequel novel WHERE SHE WENT (letmetellyouIwantthisbooknow)

Hello! I am the Ravenous Reader and I love to read and find my happiness in devouring as many YA novels as I possibly can. When I am not reading then you can find me chatting up books with my blogging buddy and bookish friends to the point of distraction. I am also extremely fortunate to live in an area that has a plethora or YA events that I love chronicling on my Instagram account.
