Happy News on Twitter today and big news for all verse novel affictionados. Ellen Hopkins’s new novel TILT debuted at # 3 on the NYT bestseller list! Ellen is no stranger to the NYT bestsellers list of course but I couldn’t be more thrilled for her. TILT is a fantastic book and Ellen is a fantastic person. She continues to be a trailblazer for all verse novelists both in her unique approach to the form and in her repeated appearances on bestsellers lists – something we can all aspire to. Congratulations Ellen!
