Unfortunately, I was not able to go to this fun and exciting event due to work. But, luckily, I had a few friends who were able to go and were able to tell me about it.  Thankfully, they were also able to get me some books from the signing.  According to Perla, the event was fun and these awesome YA authors were hilarious as they discussed and answered questions.  Thanks to Perla and Karina for attending and for getting these awesome photos of the event.
