A Winner! And a Goodreads Choice Award!

Well, none of you guessed my deepest, darkest secret:
I'm secretly a math nerd!**
Twenty-seven is my favorite number because it's 3 cubed--that's 3 threes! Perfection.

HOWEVER, there were several people who guessed, correctly, that 27 was also my age when Before I Fall was published. Well done! The first commentator to have guessed it was:

theartgirl

...who will now win a signed DELIRIUM ARC, if she will email me at laurenoliverbooks@gmail.com and tell me how to find her!!

To put to rest some of the speculative rumors that were flying:
1. My book was not rejected by 27 publishers! (Only by a couple--thank goodness!)
2. I am not married!
3. I do not have kids!

A separate and unrelated piece of news:

Did you know that Before I Fall was chosen as the Goodreads best YA book of 2010?? Look here! I can prove it!

How exciting is that??


**Did you know that the very first tattoo I ever got was the symbol for pi? It's true!

Congrats of BIF winning Best YA Fiction!

And you are way too awesome for having a pi tattoo! That is so cool, although I never really liked math.
