Introducing the APRIL #WednesdayYA Book Club Pick... [#WYA 1.4]

Liz, celebrating her birthday,
right at this moment.
Or, you know, as a child.

Okay, so I maybe sorta spoiled this month's pick (but only a little!) by revealing it a touch early. [Though to be fair, Liz and I had already started spoiling it when we heavy handedly hinted at it during last month's
WYA twitter chat...]

But long story short, because April brings Liz's birthday, our #WednesdayYA gift (non-returnable, non-refundale) to Liz is that she got to pick this month's book!

And she picked...

Contemporary/Magical Realism, 336 pages
Published October 12th 2010 by Alfred A. Knopf BYR
Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.

So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?

Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.

YOU GUYS. I'm not sure if this was Liz's birthday gift to herself, or to me, because you know I love me some A.S King.
For realsies.

I hope some of you can join us this month in reading a Printz-honor winning book from a powerhouse author, 'cause my bet would be that the twitter chat happening on April 23rd is going to be FULL OF FEELS.

Until then, make sure to wish Liz a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and I'll leave you with a birthday picture of my own: Misty, aged 2, cutting her own birthday cake because she had to have control of everything. Favorite pastime at that age: saying "You guys!" in an exasperated tone. I have a feeling it was said just before this picture was taken...
And someone, somewhere, has a picture taken about 3 minutes after this one, in which I am absolutely covered in that cake...

ANYWAY, please join us this month in reading Please Ignore Vera Dietz; and if you're feeling especially awesome, TWEET US A PICTURE of YOU on your birthday - as recent or embarrassingly young as you please! =D

And join us throughout the month as we #WednesdayYA it up!
