Please allow me a "geek" moment.

Like many people, I check out my Google Alerts now and then. Ya know, to be sure none of the other "Julie Prince"s out there are starring in porno flicks or anything I should know about before I learn it the hard way.

Anyhoo, I found a professor's 'Intro to Literature' assignment that quoted yours truly:

"In her review of The Lucky Place for ALAN, Julie M. Prince comments that, 'The challenge of keeping a character’s voice believable and consistent is always difficult. Vincent manages it under doubly difficult circumstances, since this story spans from Cassie at age three to Cassie at age twelve. Vincent has done an amazing job of capturing the world from a preschooler’s perspective and growing the voice along with the character.' Your challenge in this week's discussion forum is to first write your adult version of the event, and then try to capture that same event or memory from the perspective of the kid you used to be, the one who lived it firsthand."

Is it corny that I'm more proud of this than I am of my actual publications? *tee hee*

No, not corny at all. This means someone (a professor no less) first took the time to read your review and second liked it enough to quote you in his assignment. It's very human to crave vaildation and he vaildated you good and proper. Well deserved!
Actually I'm really jealous :o)
