I've gotten a lot of reviews for Surviving the Fog and luckily most of them have been positive. The reviews that make me feel best are those that make it obvious I've had an impact on their thinking. The reviews that instruct me about my use of grammar or correct a spelling error are the most valuable. But the most humorous are the negative reviews. Someone who decides I must be about 17 years old, or someone who comments disapprovingly on my use of sexual themes for teens and completely misses the moral point I'm making. I don't mind the few negative reviews, because that often outrages someone who has a positive view of the book.
I do take to heart the negative aspects of a review that is thoughtfully written and sometimes I incorporate those comments in a newer version.

hehe. Nothing quite so exiting. I am a tournament freestyle karate fighter. I do it for fun and exercise. Also great stress relief.

Probably only the teens themselves. Parents, teachers, and school principals have to think they're asexual little angels until the day before their eighteenth birthday.

And yes, I did say "have to think." Newthink has been kicking around the public school systems here long enough to become Oldthink.
