    Chosen by PC Cast & Kristin Cast is #2 on the NYT Children’s Paperback BSL.

    ETA: Or am I looking at the wrong date and are the Casts #2 for the forthcoming NYT BSL? Ugh, why can’t the lists’ dates coincide?

    Did I read it right? The Perfect Wife is #83 on the USA Today list and #1 on the NYT MM list?

    Maybe I did read it right. Since Simply Magic is #103 on the USA Today list and #3 on NYT MM list.

    Sugar Daddy is still $19.95? I thought it was a MM release this time around.
