My first review.

Thank you to Very Unphotogenic for the (Four star) goodreads review.


Very Unphotogenic
If I had a daughter, I would want her to read this book. And that's saying a lot. Because I wouldn't let her read anything I wrote. The story is wholesome without being cheesy and emotional without being after-school-special-y. Also, I was near tears at one point, and that's rare because I'm kind of a heartless monster when it comes to most young-adult story lines. Oh, you have an eating disorder? Yawn. Sorry for you, but, seriously, yawn. Oh, you have a drug problem? Double yawn. Oh, your mother died? Wake me up when it's over. This novel deals with issues, but it isn't issue-driven.

Mini-interview for your upcoming release

Hi Christopher,
My name is Marissa Graff and I co-host a blog called Adventures in Children's Publishing with another writer, Martina Boone. On Monday December 27th, we will be featuring books that release on the 28th. Your book, TEENIE will be included in this post to help spread the word about great new YA books. We were wondering if you would like to potentially offer an interview and/or giveaway of the book to help promote it even further. We sincerely appreciate your time and wish you all the best!

Kindly,
Marissa Graff
