Phoebe Kitanidis is the author of the novel Whisper. Have you read it yet? You can read my review here. When asked to describe Whisper in 7 words or less, Phoebe said, teen sisters hear people's wishes: danger ahead. She grew up in a variety of places, including Athens, Greece; the American Midwest; and the San Francisco Bay Area. She now lives in Seattle and wrote Fab Girls Guide to Friendship Hardship as well as dozens of articles for tween girls before writing Whisper.

The event at Kepler's was packed. My last count was 70 people but I saw people arrive late and her Dad putting up more chairs. They bought a cake with the book cover on it (see photo), champagne, and cider. The audience asked lots of questions and were genuinely thrilled to see Phoebe here at the store she has shopped in her whole life. We sold out of books. It was a lot of fun. Ah, I love events like this one.
