Let’s play a guessing game! One of these things is not like the other.
Need a hint? It’s NOT that one of them has a sticker on it and one of them does not.
Oh, and it is not that one of them is in paperback and the other is not because, yes, that’s right, HUGGING THE ROCK is now out in paperback! Just in time for Father’s Day (hey, it’s a father/daughter book) and just in time for summer reading programs (please!).
Okay, here’s the hint. I’ll show you the back of the book and I bet you’ll be able to figure it out.
Did you get it? Yes, that’s right, not only is HUGGING THE ROCK in paperback here in the US but there is another paperback version – the British version – that it out too. UK rights sold a while back and it was fun to get this copy of it. I’m so glad they left the beautiful cover as it was. Interestingly enough, although they changed “Mom” to “Mum” on the back flap, the interior of the book still reads as just “Mom.”.
So if you have a friend in the UK – tell them to keep an eye out for the book. And if you’re putting together a summer reading list, please keep Hugging the Rock in mind.
