Big News!!!

You've probably already guessed it from the title. So there's no use beating around the bush.  Here's the big news:

FROM PUBLISHER'S MARKETPLACE:

Miranda Paul's ONE PLASTIC BAG, inspired by a true story, chronicling the grassroots effort of five young Gambian women who, despite ridicule and hardship, take up a creative recycling project that brings beauty and prosperity back to their village, to Carol Hinz at Lerner Publishing, by Karen Grencik at Red Fox Literary (World).

YAY doesn't cut it, but. . .

YAY ANYWAY!
