  Teachers, professors, librarians, and booksellers: You are my heroes. I want you to take one minute now and smile about the important work you do. You are loved. I thank you for reading my books, for sharing them with your friends and colleagues, and for sharing them with your students and patrons.

  Student readers, thank you for reading. Thank you for writing to me. Thank you for being you. You are not ovals. You are not letters. You are human beings, and every time someone rolls their eyes at you because they think your opinion doesn’t count, picture me giving them the finger.
