Dreaming Big with Lisa Schroeder
Before I start, check out this kiss a$$ trailer!!! It is my new fave!
I met Lisa for the first time this past summer at the SCBWI-LA conference. She was rooming with our buddy Lindsey Leavitt which automatically meant she was a doll, and boy, was she!!!! Er... IS she!!!
I can't remember how I first read Lisa's first book but I think I just picked it up at the bookstore. I had never read a book in verse before but I was hooked. It was a beautiful and easy book to read and for the first time in a long time, I cried at the end. I think I identified with the MC in some way and was touched by the way Lisa wrote about her emotions.
Needless to say I bought Lisa's second book the day it came out and once again found myself in tears at the end. How does she do that?
Yesterday, Lisa's third book hit the shelves and I can't wait to read it!
HERE is the story of her journey. Go read it! It will probably make you cry. JUST KIDDING!!!! It's awesome!
*** And, all month long Lisa's blog will be hopping with stories of people who dreamed BIG, just like she did. It's my must read site of the month.
