Here there be a collection of abstract, useless and of course sparkly tid bits from all over the net.
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace–no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.
Her past has come back to hunt her … and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world all stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.
Official cover AND back cover copy AND a two chapter excerpt?! Oh happy day!
All Fall Down: an Embassy Row novel, coming January 27, 2015.

Plan Ahead of Time
Keeping your days planned and organized is one of those things that are also required to keep you from going crazy on those busy weeks. Know what is going to happen before it happens. Either buy or create a family planner. Creating one is really not hard at all. All you need is a bulletin board, dry erase board or something similar to keep things running smooth throughout the week. Don’t forget about that swimming lesson or soccer practice. Be sure to include homework schedules, a calender, and those out of the ordinary things that your kids will need to take with them to school.
You should watch this in a private place where you can shameless and uncontrollably cry. It’s a must watch.
