I just now, right this five-minutes-ago, found out that THE REPLACEMENT debuted at #10 on the New York Times children’s list. I am really, really not coherent right now, so instead of words, this is a picture of me looking crazy.
Thank you guys—just . . . thank you. Thank you so, so, so much. (I’m really truly almost crying right now.)
:D :D :D
Wow. I thought it would come out higher….. :)
You clearly had much more confidence than I :D
It’s such a weird book, Claire! This is my weird-book victory! (now all I need is some kind of dance . . .)
Oh! And congrats!
Wow. Congrats!!!! Well done:)
Thank you :)
\o/ (it’s a little victory-person!)
Congrats to you and Mackie!!! Bravo!!!
You’re next, Andrea!
YAAAAAAY! Well deserved!! Congratulations!!
Thank you! You guys all really helped so much with the early reviews and the buzz ♥
We are still bouncing over here. Yay, Brenna!!!!
I’m bouncing—we’re all bouncing! Why is Maggie in Europe and not in my computer?!
OMG that’s so exciting!!! Congratulations!!!! :)
Thank you :D :D :D
Yay, yay, yay! Congratulations, Brenna! <333 YOU ROCK!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! (*dance party*)
I’m not nearly as shocked about this as you are, but I am absolutely totally and completely thrilled for you.
MANY hugs to you, and I can hardly wait to see where things go from here. :D
Hugs, hugs, hugs! I want to virtual-dance around the living room with you :D
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, that’s WONDERFUL! And sososo well deserved!
Thanks, Beth! I’m so discombobulated right now!
Congratulations! :) I bought my copy yesterday, it’s currently waiting at the top of my to-read pile across the room.
Thank you!!! I hope you enjoy it. (I think I have to go die now)
As I have now read and enjoyed it quite a lot, I can now authoritatively say no dying is required. Bestsellers that deserve it for their quality are something the world always needs more of. Congrats again!
Congratulations, Brenna! HUGE!
I would say something coherent. But I can’t. Because I am busy squealing!
CONGRATULATIONS BRENNA!!!!! I’m not that surprised ;)
I’ve got a beautiful, shiny, hardback of The Replacement which I pre-ordered as I couldn’t wait for the UK release. Looking forward to reading :)
Oh, very cool! (I have such an undying love for the US cover)
Congrats!! :D My copy is sitting on the shelf, waiting for the weekend to arrive so I can give it my undivided attention…
Thanks—I hope you like it!
HURRAY!!! This is the second congratulations I get to give you today. The book is amazing and awesome, I can’t understand how you’re at all surprised. Congrats!
You just . . . you don’t think . . . just . . . I feel like I need to scream really loud right now!
DO IT! Go dance in the street, sing at the top of you lungs, do something crazy! You deserve it!
::Sarah does a happy dance for you::
Picture expressing such excitement in this case, so much better than words. Proud moment friend, well deserved!
Crazy, crazy, crazy! I am having a really rough time processing this :)
Breathe, Brenna, breathe… This is just the beginning of the awesome life you live now. ;)
Awesome! It’s not over yet! Is this two posts in a row where you’ve showen some emotion? Congratulations and enjoy.
