Parlez Vous?

I have a confession to make- after four years of high school French I still had no idea how to say "ART GEEKS AND PROM QUEENS" - until now. That's right, my second novel, is now being sold in France! They've given it a new super cute cover to go with the French translation, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on one and see just how much I retained from those long ago lessons. . . though if any of you know the real translation for Riens Du Lycee, I'd love to hear it. Without the benefit of my French/English dictionary I'm thinking- High School Nobody? But please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!

Also, this Wednesday marks the official end of the "FLY ME TO THE MOON" tour. I'll be signing copies at:

7:00 pm at Borders
3333 Bear Street, Costa Mesa, CA (across from South Coast Plaza!)

I'd love to meet some new people. So any of you who are in the area, please feel free to stop by and say hello!

Hi Kelly!
I love your blog, and would love to do an interview with you guys!
Just let me know, and I'm there!

It says "reines" du lycee, which means 'queens of high school'. 'Rien de lycee' would mean something like 'no high school'.

And you're right, it's such a cute cover! I love French girly covers, they still look so smart.

Thanks Kiki- I was dying to know what it meant!
