"SUSPENSEFUL and thought-provoking..." for LIE in new starred review, plus Wimpy Kid in the house

Tonight ran out to bookstore, a real bookstore, at 8 pm, in the rain.  I had to buy son, age 11, a copy of new Wimpy Kid to add to his collection.  I was so happy he wanted to read, had to read it today, the first day it was out (though I forgot to buy it earlier) that I was okay running out to buy it.  He came with me and started reading it before we left the store.  Oh, to be eleven and in love with a book, the crisp feel of new pages, the devouring of words, a new friend and an old one at the same time. 

At the bookstore,  they also had a several copies of LIE in the teen section, and I'll admit it, I just happened to pick them up and move to them to the front under 'bestsellers' for young people -- because it is selling well, thank you very much!!  New starred review out officially today from Booklist, one of those important publishing trade mags.  Here's an excerpt from the review: 
"Suspenseful and thought-provoking, this is a compellingly readable novel with a challenging theme and memorable characterizations. A terrific choice to spark discussion and debate.”
