Fantastic (in all senses of the word) story of human/dragon interaction with a great imperfect-but-strong and sympathetic female lead. Recommended to many library patrons—well-received.
also, met Rachel Hartman at ALA2013 in Chicago, so nice!

Sam is on page 67 of 279 of Trade Me: If 50 Shades didn't feature sadomasochism and had been written by a scorchingly intelligent woman with legit feminist cred, it would be Trade Me. I am quite enamored of Tina, Blake, and Ms. Milan.

“Still in my coat and hat, I sank onto the stair to read the letter. (I never read without making sure I am in a secure position. I have been like this ever since the age of seven when, sitting on a high wall and reading The Water Babies, I was so seduced by the descriptions of underwater life that I unconsciously relaxed my muscles. Instead of being held buoyant by the water that so vividly surrounded me in my mind, I plummeted to the ground and knocked myself out. I can still feel the scar under my fringe now. Reading can be dangerous.)”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
