  39. I enjoyed Sarah’s comment “Like a dessert” in reference to how she takes her coffee. I’ve been on her website before with the candy bars and donuts, so I’m not suprised. She is to cute! I loved the book! Since my hometown is the DC area, I enjoyed the references she made to certain areas I remember going to.

  41. I had already friended Sarah on Facebook when I bought her book the day it came out. She graciously accepted my friendship.

  42. What a great author chat! I really enjoyed hearing about the birth of the contest you won, how she goes about refining her story (changing the amt of sisters) and I’m really excited to hear about her next novel! Thanks for the chance to win Opposite Of Me, I can’t wait to read it.

  44. After reading your chat with Sarah, now I really want to
    read her story about the fraternal twins (my mom was

  48. I was really surprised to read how much she liked “In Her Shoes”–I was so disappointed with that one! Maybe if I hadn’t seen the movie first, I would have liked the book better because they were really a lot different.

    I’m follower!

  49. I loved her little known fact about how she didn’t make it onto Wheel of Fortune. That was too funny. I ‘d love to be entered!

  50. I’m a subscriber so entry # 2 please 🙂

  51. I love that she was rejected for Wheel of Fortune. That’s a badge of honor in my opinion! 🙂
