I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Debut Author
Why I Love...Christopher Grant
Why I Love Wednesdays... Debut AuthorI love this particular topic as it has to change as authors continue to write more books.  I love that feeling of finding and author for the first time.  Then the moment where I realize that it is their first book or story gives me that extra tingle.  I get excited because I know there is so much more to come.
Why I Love Wednesdays... Debut AuthorI'm currently enamored with Mr. Christopher Grant, author of Teenie.  I reviewed Teenie and interviewed Mr. Grant during the Black History Month Blog Hop.  I am still staggered that Teenie, a book about a young black girl, was written by a man.  Oh I know it happens, but that isn't the problem.  I'm still just so flabbergasted that it was done and done so well.  Teenie's voice was so clearly that of a teen girl.  I had to keep looking at the flap to make sure I wasn't crazy.  I absolutely have to give Mr. Grant props for writing such a great book in an unexpected voice.
I have to admit that there are many more authors that I love and for different reasons.
