MJ news and excitement

Lots of exciting things happening in Maureen Johnson’s corner of the world, as she preps for SUITE SCARLETT’s release, and masterminds a devious campaign to Free Alan Rickman. Check out her soon-to-be-fantastically-redesigned blog for more information on how you can become a member of Scarlett’s Eleven.
That’s not enough news for you? Well, then, I’m delighted to share that GIRL AT SEA, Maureen Johnson’s previous book, was just named to the New York Public Library’s “Books for the Teen Age” list for 2008. Unfortunately, the NYPL teenlink website‘s not updated yet with the full list, but do be sure to check back later, because this is a fantastic reading list for the very best in teen fiction, or adult fiction that teens will love.
