What’s playing on the iPod right now? GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN by Cyndi Lauper
It’s no small feat to hit the NYT series list. Looking at who was on the week before last, it was even scarier. At that time, there was only one non-vampire, non-paranormal title on the list (Diary of A Wimpy Kid).
Then last week, 39 Clues popped back on making that two titles on the NYT Series list.
Now I’m happy to report that there are THREE titles on the Series list. Coming in at #6, The Gallagher Girls land a spot.
HUGE CONGRATS ALLY!
