It is not true suffering ennobles the character; happiness does that sometimes, but suffering, for the most part, makes men petty and vindictive.

Edward: Gene is hard at work on several projects! Can't wait to leak the next one, as soon as I'm allowed to. Hint: he's writing the script this time, and another ENORMOUSLY talented someone is doing the artwork.

Thanks for the notes, everyone! Kat: from you especially!

Hi Mike!

Wonderful news! I just bought this book finally last week. I read a lot of it when it was on ModernTales.com, and loved it then, but to read the finished book, and in colour... It is truely deserving of the attention it's getting.

I hope you've got Gene hard at work on his next book.

This is so fabulous! I served on the committee for the 2002 award, so I also know first-hand just how hard Printz Award committee members work. But not only that, the book deserves every accolade because it's just simply that good. Congratulations to everyone involved, from Gene Yang to everyone at First Second. What a wonderful thing to happen in your first year of publishing!

Congratulations on American Born Chinese winning the 2007 Michael L. Printz award! That's awesome! I served on the committee last year and I know that the committee put a lot of heart and soul into the voting process. Congratulations on such an accomplishment.

Congratulations to Mr. Yang! I'm in the middle of reading American Born Chinese and it's just amazing. It deserves all the accolades it has been getting!
