And here's a copy of My Life as a Rhombus. In Korean.

This ranks pretty high on the "things I never thought would happen" list.

I love how both covers show show a girl covering her mouth with her hand, though I have no idea whether that's Sarah or Rhonda on the Korean Cover.

But my favorite, favorite, favorite part of the Korean verion, by far, is the interior art:

Here's "Congruence":

And here's "Remainders":

So exciting, V!!! Just finished reading Saving Maddie (still reading a few books at one time.) Sad to see it end as I was enjoying the interactions. Will there be another sequel?

Sadly I don't speak Korean =/

But that is so awesome! The Korean cover has a cuter feel to it. I love the illustrations inside :)

I started and finished Saving Maddie today, and I really loved every single page! Thanks so much for it!
Oh and your book in Korean is super awesome.
I DO read and speak Korean, though, I'm only okay at it... maybe I can pick up the Korean version sometime and practice? :)
Love, Hannah
