I’m a big fan of Stephanie Kate Strohm‘s books (you’ve read Pilgrims Don’t Wear Pink, haven’t you?), and when the opportunity came along to work with her on her new project, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Stephanie is so sharp and so funny, and she loves history and theatre and food and pop culture — O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright, and she’s basically my dream dinner date. So you can imagine how delighted I am to report that her new YA novel, THE TAMING OF THE DREW, has sold to Sky Pony Press. It’s set at a kooky summer Shakespeare program for teenagers that reminds me of my own (also kooky) high school theatre experiences and it has one of the funniest first-person narrators you’ll ever meet. LOVE.

Congratulate Stephanie on Twitter, why don’t you?
