Recommended to KatieLynn by: Adora Svitak
Flying Fingers was amazing: considering it was written by a seven-year old. Adora's book of short stories, tips, and poetry was extraordinary. She had a very good usage of words in all her stories, and I can't wait to read her next and upcoming books. (Which my comment will be in! Squeeee!!!!)
