I took some screen grabs for Paddy (since he couldn't watch the parade live) and thought I might as well drop a few of them in here:
likes to write things down and is a firm believer in the John Lennon quote,"If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliché that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal." Her ninth young adult book, JUST LIKE YOU SAID IT WOULD BE, is available now and is full of movie references and giddy love for Dublin, Ireland. She'll make her middle grade debut with Cormorant's Dancing Cat Books imprint in fall, 2017.
