Wings'n on Up!


Wow, ok, I haven't had a Mischief announcement of this size I think, umm, ever before. But Aprilynne Pike, who's been a blog friend two years now (I remember the first time you linked to me, Aprilynne--it was July of 2007, and you had to nicely explain to your mom why why my blog wasn't quite as profane as the title seemed!), wrote a YA book called Wings, which has JUST DEBUTED AT #6 ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!!!!

Um, yeah. I knew you when!!!!
