      Juice! Great to hear from you as always. You are the legendary juice.

      What?! This nomination is not surprising, but the competition is super-extra fierce.

      I truly love the last chapter of the book, and Stephen’s performance at the end is so sad and comforting at the same time. Like, he’s always going to be looking out for you, America. And Erica.

      We will be keeping our fingers crossed here at the Hub, to be sure!!!!!

    You guys are right – the competition is fierce! I love and own all of Stephen’s books, from ‘Wigfield’ on up. Whenever I’m down, I pull out one of his books and it instantly lifts my spirits. Best of luck to ‘America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t.’ The audio version is fantastic, so the win would be wonderful. Maybe he’ll take his daughter as his Grammy date again. He is such a sweet father. Wow, Stephen and TCR staff are nominated for so many awards right now and I can’t think of more deserving souls.
