The Rating Race Begins

It’s almost 1:00 in the afternoon already and I swear I only intended to spend a half hour updating by Cry Baby Cry website. The thing, is, though, that in the process of doing that, I discovered the book had received its first 5-star rating on Goodreads, which resulted in a whole flurry of postings and updates on all my websites and social media venues.

Then, just as I thought I could go throw a load of clothes in the washer, a five star review on Amazon popped up and ZOOM, there I am, off again. I promise, though that this will be my last update of the day (unless I discover more reviews and ratings later on!).

The first 5-stars came from  Sheri Wilkerson on Goodreads:

The second one was posed on Amazon by Marydale S. and comes with some wonderful accolades.

This is a page-turner by a seasoned author. I especially like the fact that this author not only writes from experience (she has been a volunteer worker among homeless youth) but also from and with compassion. Her books are more than entertainment; they teach us tolerance and awareness of lives that aren’t conventional, easy, or “socially acceptable.” A worthwhile read!

Thanks to Sheri and Marydale. And I look forward to hearing what YOU think of it, too. Let me know.
