(s)he's just not that into you, jr.

Of course he has time to write books. He's nine. (I'm not bitter.) You've got to scroll down a ways in this CNN transcript, but it's worth it (especially when he tries to convince Betty Nguyen that it's OK - better even! - to be a regular girl than a pretty girl). The kid's really a kid, and hopefully HarperCollins will let that kid-ness ring true when they market this book.

I'd love for ^my kids^ to read something published by a 9-year-old, except I don't know if I want to be the teacher pointing them toward what is basically a guidebook to scoring on the playground.
