Do you remember the time I drove over 800 miles to attend Kate DiCamillo's event for Indies First Storytime Day? Oh, that was such a memorable day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

By now you might be asking yourself what in the world Kate DiCamillo has to do with a cover reveal for Shelley Tougas' The Graham Cracker Plot. I'm about to make my point. Shelley also attended Kate's event at Chapter2Books. We met very, very briefly. I think we smiled at each other, said "hello," and I was off to the next conversation. The entire day was a surreal whirlwind. Thankfully, I have an opportunity to get to know Shelley better by reading The Graham Cracker Plot and inviting her back on Watch. Connect. Read. on September 12.
OK, are you ready for the big reveal? Drum roll, please...
