We are down to the wire at the Horn Book Guide, madly trying to finish editing reviews for the fall 2012 issue (due out in October) for an early August deadline. In other words, we are punchy. When we noticed the name of the eleven-year-old main character of Cordially Uninvited, Jennifer Roy’s ripped-from-People-magazine-headlines novel about a royal wedding, we had to laugh. Claire Gross, former associate editor for The Horn Book Magazine, current Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois, herself a bride-to-be, is also a bridesmaid at the prince of England’s wedding? We always knew how brilliant she is, but she had no idea she was so versatile. If anyone can do it, our Claire Gross can.
