Hurray for VCFA (Vermont College of Fine Arts) writers.
Saving Maddie is a great book!
(Don't put me in the contest. I'll get my own copy. But I wanted to also congratulate Varian here, and say what a great author and person he is. He is so cool to hang out with, if you get the change someday.)
Thank you for leaving these very kind words for Varian!

Looking forward to purchasing Varain Johnson's book "Saving Maddie". Congratulations and happy birthday to him. Your interview questions and his responses were very insightful. This book would be good to use with youth church groups. It is not preachy but opens up communication to talk about subjects that are meaningful to young adults in a christian environment.
These are wonderful comments, and I'm thinking Varian (and his readers would enjoy seeing them. Would you like to cross-post (copy/paste) them on the interview entry? If so, you'll also be automatically entered in the contest.... :)
