Bestselling author Meg Cabot calls The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus: “Funny, fresh, and heartbreakingly poignant, this book had me laughing and crying at the same time. Thank you, Sonya Sones, for finally saying what so many of us have been thinking for so long.”
I have 10 copies of The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus to give away to the first 10 people who comment that they can participate in the show on Tuesday, May 10th at 7pm ET!
