James Dashner

Trying to remember what she said she wanted to be when she grew up.
James Dashner of Maze Runner fame came to St. Louis!  We took the family!  He asked the audience for what they wanted to be when they grew up.  My son enthusiastically replied, "A ninja!"  The whole audience laughed and my son cried.  He thought they thought he was being silly.  He was perfectly honest.  He wants to be a ninja when he grows up.

His new series the Infinity Ring is about these kids time travelers who go back in time and fix breeches in time.  The first one starts with in the French Revolution 1789.  Must be pretty good, I haven't been able to get a hold of it to read it since everybody else (read husband and nine year old) are reading it!  Need some ideas for Middle Grade and YA fiction?  Check out James Dashner.
