"Re Shawn's comment: "I can appreciate your stand, Carolyn, but I still don't believe Kirkus is worth $400 to $500. I'd have to sell a lot of books to make-up the cost." You don't need to convince me.  : ) …"

"Both lines, very intriguing! Seems a bit heavy on the death theme, though. Are these YA novels mysteries? "
