Wow! I don't think I've ever been on a short list before! Thanks so much for including my book. It's a thrill to see it listed among so many fabulous other books.

Keep reading!

Me, too! I think the only short list I've ever been on is the one at the deli counter.

A Difficult Boy is a wonderful book which brought me right into a past time and the life and mind of "a difficult boy." It is well written, well researched and a great read. Congratulations to MP Barker. Judy Gibson, Redmond, OR
