It is Holly Black's White Cat, the story of a world in which magic is real and has been outlawed since Prohibition, making all magic users outlaws and most outlaws magic users. Its star is Cassel, a boy from a family of workers who is trying to go straight. He is hindered in that by his jailed mother, his mobster brother, his other and kind of more evil law student brother, and that one time he killed the girl he loved. It is funny, sharp magical noir, and I love it: when I was told I was touring with Holly Black I started screaming with delight. Thank you, S&S, for choosing such an awesome tour partner for me!

I also have a special something for those of you who follow me online. If you think you might be able to make it to one of these events, give me your address below (replies are screened) and I will send you a postcard. Bring the postcard and I have secret stuff for you!
Yay. I am so excited about this. I feel it is going to be awesome! Holly and I already have EQUIPMENT. 'Why do you have equipment' you might say with mingled fear and anticipation. 'What are you two planning that will involve GEAR?'
You will have to come and see...
