I like that my mom is a writer. She has friends that are authors and they are really cool. One of her friends is writing book and her name is Aurora. Not her real name. I don’t want to give the author's identity away, you know, like Batman or Spiderman. I’m great at keeping secrets.
She sends over excerpts of her book she is writing. It’s awesome!
My mom has read her book Ellie Stanton Would Like To Thank You From The Bottom Of Her Heart, No Seriously. She said it was a fantastic story and my mom is a picky reader.
I am giving Aurora my mustache award for being cool and letting me read what she writes. To include me is awesome. My mom is going to post the cover and what the book is about.
All of my mom’s friends talk and treat me very nicely. They never make me feel bad about myself. I have been around adults that treat their kids or their friend like annoyances. I can feel that they aren’t happy people. Who wants to hang around them? Not me and not my mom.
It’s the simple act of an author including me in their writing that makes me smile. Five Stache’s Aurora!

Ellie Stanton needed to have a good day. The universe had something else in store. Getting caught shoplifting. Check. Dumping her lame boyfriend. Check. Expulsion from school. Check. Getting kicked out of her house and then stealing her mother’s car while she’s in a NJ turnpike rest stop Cinnabon? Check. The only sensible option is to run as fast as she can and never look back. Now Ellie is running going cross country to raise a little hell and maybe along the way learn everything she needs to know about life.
I love, love, love new authors and I love, love, love this book. Ellie reminds me of a friend I had in high school, I think that's what partly pulled me in but also the writing is beyond amazing. It's fresh and not like all the others books that have been coming out lately.
The kid scolded me for not writing a proper review for Aurora and shame on me for not. Giving it just stars isn't enough. Bad reader. Bad, bad reader I am.
Seriously though, I want to thank Aurora for including Logan. He truly looks forward to each excerpt and feels pretty darn special. Thank you! You rock!
