Kasey has been reviewing young adult and middle grade books since 2013 and has posted over 700 book reviews. When not reading, you might find her out on the water with a fly rod, binge-watching movies and TV shows featuring strong heroines with her daughter, or entertaining delusions of crafting grandeur at Joann's Fabrics. She lives in Central Florida with her family and two rather opinionated cats.
