I don't know if you will get the chance to read this, but I figured I would take a shot.
I am a teacher at Southern Regional Middle School in Manahawkin, NJ. Our sending districts have been hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. We have many faculty and students that are displaced.
Our librarian, Johanna , was one hit particularly hard and she is a gigantic fan of yours. She even jokes all the time about how much she is in love with your main character, Mitch.
She has been like an extended family member to my wife and our two sons since I have been a teacher here. If there was a way that I could somehow purchase one of your books and if you could sign it to her, I would greatly appreciate it.
I was just thinking of bringing just a little joy to her during this difficult time for Johanna and her family. She would probably kill me if she found out I was writing this because she doesn't even want others to know how much she has been through.
She is not the type of person to complain about anything, but she is the first person to help others at any moment.
