Thanks for capturing these moments, @msphillipsclass!

The Q&A after my debut reading of Attack! Boss! Cheat Code! A Gamer’s Alphabet at the Texas Book Festival today included the following questions/exchanges/assertions:


First Girl: Why do boys go crazy for video games?

Me: Same reasons boys do, I guess.

First Girl: I go crazy for TV.

Second Girl: I go crazy for video games and TV.


Boy: Why did you write a book about video games? They turn your brain to mush.

Third Girl: Even if you don’t like video games, you can still read the book.


I can already tell that I’m going to enjoy the heck out of school visits for this one.
