I spent this last Saturday at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and had the chance to sit in on several author panels.  My favorite, by far, featured YA author Lisa Yee who read from her new book Absolutely Maybe which tells the story of Maybe (short for Maybelline, her mom’s favorite mascara brand) who hitches a ride to California in search of her real father.  The novel has already been nominated for a 2009 Teens’ Top Ten award, and if you read the book and like it you can vote for it on the YALSA website. I’m planning on picking up my copy this week.  If you give it a read, I’d love to hear what you think!
