While on the topic of lists…

I’m overdue in celebrating this mention from the wonderful Betsy Bird at School Library Journal’s Fuse #8 Blog, but A Girl Called Problem‘s own Mama Shida made Ms. Bird’s list for the “WORST parents of 2013” in kid lit. Here’s what she had to say about Mama Shida, who was placed in the “Mildly Awful” parent category:

On the one hand, Shida’s mother is biting, neglectful, and self-absorbed.  On the other, it seems pretty clear, to the average adult reader anyway, that she’s clinically depressed.

I tell you, any mention from Fuse #8 is an honor!
