About this author


The pink flamingo watching over Rain Dragon's garden was deemed not-child-friendly as she kept trying to pull it up from its metal legs. To make up for its disappearance (and to her great joy), we got her some new garden ornaments:
a hummingbird of her choice
and a dragon that I could not resist gettingHowever, after installing them, Rain Dragon was not quite satisfied. She insisted that the ga... Read more of this blog post »

Wendy Mass is great writer, the characters were completely believable and fun. At first, I thought the plot was a bit too contrived until I got to the end and realized it was supposed to be contrived! The ending saved it for me and I was happily sati...more

From the size of the actual book (it's just a bit smaller than standard, perfect for smaller hands) to the characters to the storyline and vocabulary words this book is charming, charming, charming.

This book was great! One of the best MG mysteries I've read, with dimensional characters and no annoying loose ends. Really impressed and was incredibly sad when I looked up the author and realized she was deceased.

“If you make happy those that are near, those that are far will come.”
Grace Lin, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

“Whenever I see her, we laugh enough to last for the month. She's my best friend, and someday when we're old enough I'm going to talk her into staying here forever.”
Grace Lin, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

“She's my friend, the boy said simply. That's who she is and that's enough for me. As Minli looked at the buffalo boy, aglow with happiness against his poor surroundings, she saw it was enough for him. More than enough, as the smile that kept curling up on his face told her.”
Grace Lin, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
