Mitali Perkins has published a new book!

This Friday, I'd like to give a shout-out to our good friend, Mitali Perkins. Her latest book, First Daughter, just went on sale yesterday. New Moon featured Mitali's book, Monsoon Summer, as our May 2006 book club selection. I haven't read this latest one yet, but I definitely recommend her work. Not only is she a great author, but she maintains a fantastic blog about "life between cultures." AND her character Sameera from First Daughter ALSO keeps a blog. How cool is that? Check out what Mitali has to say:

"Dear Friends,

Please smash a champagne bottle against your computer screen and rejoice with me (okay, skip the champagne and stick to the rejoicing). First Daughter: Extreme American Makeover (Dutton Books For Young Readers), a novel for teens, released yesterday. A sequel, First Daughter: White House Rules, will be published January 2008. My main character, Sameera “Sparrow” Righton, is tracking the real First Kid wannabes in the ‘08 campaign from now until November 2008 at her own blog: It’s campaign lite but fun to ghost-write, and I hope Sparrow’s posts will be entertaining for teens (and others). Thanks so much for your support and encouragement.

Mitali Perkins"
