I can’t remember the last time I posted so much! You know this assignment thing might be good for me. Also, discovering the handy tool that allows me to schedule posts has been a lifesaver. I’m not sure I would have made that discovery without posting on here so often due to the Maggie Thrash assignment.
I have gone through everything on Maggie’s page and since she doesn’t do the normal blog with new posts every so often, I am running out of content. She does do a newsletter instead but the page doesn’t tell me how frequently that comes. Bummer. I have been going back to her books page a lot though. Since I wanna be a published author and she is. I mean, even if it’s nonfiction content, it’s still YA. It makes me wonder if I have a story from my life that’s worth sharing.
Honor Girl is Maggie’s debut novel and it’s also a graphic memoir. All true, based on her life at fifteen, in photo form. I like how that aspect is unique. I don’t see a lot of graphic memoir books around. Anyways, I went to Amazon (here) to check it out so that I could look inside the novel at a few of the pages and it’s like her comics page. Amazon’s site said there was only seventeen left in stock so it must be selling like hot cakes. At four and a half stars, I can imagine. I guess she tells one hell of a nonfiction YA story. I might just have to order it.
“But with nonfiction, the task is very straightforward: Do the research, tell the story.”
