Here at Oops we are huge fans of Ann E Burg's All The Broken Pieces. We loved it so much we chose it for our library system's Mock Newbery and our Mock Printz. You can read our review here.
So when Jarrett from Evanston Public Library asked if we could link to an interview with her, how could we refuse?! Read his interview entitled, "Airlifted by Poetry." You'll be glad you did!
