university news

I got a review from UMKC's student paper.

It's great that they reviewed it. However, it's sad that the writer seemingly didn't put two and two together to realize that the same Marcus Leach in the book is also the student at UMKC--and then go write something about that, too.

I'm really flattered that you posted my review on your blog. Thank you so much! I truly loved reading Cross-x, so much so that I was pretending to do work during class while actually your book. You definitely hit on issues that many people don't want to think about in Kansas City. Thank you for writing a book that shows these issues as they are and not as we pretend they are.

Also, a sidenote to heidi; I do know that Marcus Leach goes to UMKC. He does some fantastic opinon columns every now and then that you should definitely read. However, I thought it would be out of place to discuss that in a book review.

Thanks, Jessie, for your kind words. I'm glad you liked the books so much.
