Two emails came to me tonight:
Hello there.....my name is Kevin and I was in Chicago over the weekend and saw your book in a Borders Bookstore and bought it. I'm not much of a reader.....actually I hate reading. I am 18 years old and have probably never completely read a book cover to cover. Your book is just so addicting to read because I can relate to a lot of the feelings that you had.........I just wanted to say thank you for giving me a new outlook on reading!! — civicman022
"On july 23rd, I had my youngest brother give my Mom, the bday present, I couldn't give her, because I was on my way to San Diego. It was a graphic novel about something she was familiar with, thanks to local TV, and she LOVED it! TSSTG vol. 1 by Tom Beland. Congrats U have a brand new fan.Get well soon."
