Booksellers 'Have a Special Responsibility'

"My gratitude to the booksellers is so deep because I know they are nothing but lovers of books, and they are going to be honest and critical, and they have a special responsibility in what books they are going to hand to a child. What better group of people to say, 'OK, Jewell, we think you did good.' "

--Jewell Parker Rhodes, whose novel Ghost Boys is the #1 pick for the Spring 2018 Kids' Indie Next List, in a q&a with Bookselling This Week
