Today’s BookFlix Friday from the morning announcement:
Before the trailer, I wanted to show off Samantha’s contribution to the blog: an interview about the ARC The Wig in the Window.
Pretty cool, right? Thanks again to Ms Kittscher for the advanced copy.
We also received this Tweet from Ms K:

Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name, makes few friends and doesn’t stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend’s family to die — of “natural causes.” Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, and moves on to the next target.
When his own parents died of not-so-natural causes at the age of eleven, Boy Nobody found himself under the control of The Program, a shadowy government organization that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. But somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the boy he once was, the boy who wants normal things (like a real home, his parents back), a boy who wants out. And he just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s next mission.
And a little more Reading&Tweeting:
It was such a thrill to hear and see my first review from a kid! Thank you, Samantha!! I loved this video, and I’m so glad you enjoyed The Wig in the Window. I loved hearing about your friend who might be a little more like Grace Yang:-) As for your question, I think I understand who you might mean. Do you mean the little side characters in S.M.I.L.E.? Or Jocelyn and Natalie, Grace’s friends? Send an email, and I’ll reply to you so I don’t spoil anything! Many thanks — I better go work on THE TIARA ON THE TERRACE!
