Before you check out the Marty McGuire chat archives I think you should think about reading Mr. Schu’s Interview with Kate Messner.
Wasn’t that interview amazing? Did you just preorder Capture the Flag? I did.
Now be sure to check out Nerdy Book Club award winning author Kate Messner’s Nerdy post.
I love Kate’s Nerdy post. Actually, I love everything Kate writes.
On Wednesday May 23, Mr. Schu and I hosted a Twitter book club. Our topic was Marty McGuire. I would like to thank everyone that took time out of their busy lives to celebrate Kate’s book with us. I had a blast!

KateMessner @sweetpea1273 I know quite a few kids like Marty. I’m a mom to one. (Heck, let’s be honest-I’m still a lot like Marty myself!) #martymcguire -7:07 PM May 23rd, 2012

mentortexts I love how Marty has ideas and follows through with them – even if maybe she should think twice. Love her go-for-it-ness! #martymcguire -7:08 PM May 23rd, 2012
heidihuestis #martymcguire promotes mucking around and getting dirty. Dirt helps the imagination, I think!#Martymcguire -7:10 PM May 23rd, 2012
