really liked it
Read in November, 2009

As someone who works in children's publishing, I found this book inspiring and yet a little depressing. While UN certainly had to contend with bottom-line issues (and general lack of respect for "kiddie lit" in the early days) she also had the freedom to take chances with talent and concepts she believed in. The opportunities to follow your gut in publishing are few and far between these days. But again, mostly this book was inspiring.
