When Melanie Crouse looks out her window right now, all she can see are ice covered trees and a huge igloo surrounded by glittery, sparkly snow. There is also a cat, but he is barely visible because his white fur is such great camouflage in the winter.

Reblogged from The Prosers
Last night, I jumped out of my computer chair, rushed over to my teenage daughter, grabbed a piece of her hair and said, "What is this? What would you call it? Oh...a lock! Of course!" Then, I hurried back over to the computer and typed the words, "picked up a lock of her hair and gave it a gentle tug." (Or something that was much more brilliant than that. But you get...

Wow. Does it make sense to say that Maureen Cavanagh describes incredibly familiar feelings, even though I haven't had a child struggle with opioid addiction? She describes the magnified version of feelings I have felt as a mother. I am so grateful f ...more

I enjoyed this book except for the strange romance-like thing that went on between Zara and her spaceship. I remarked to my son when I was about halfway through "I'm sure I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like she's attracted to her spaceship." I ...more

I could not put this book down, and now that it is over, I can't really explain why. Katie William's writing reminded me of a modern Isaac Asimov--the way the characters all revolved around a central piece of science fiction and the way their lives t ...more

I was captivated by the storyline. I kept off the one star because I found some of Chloe's choices unbelievable and unlikable. Jon was great though, and his relationship with Chloe rang true.

“I think we ought to live happily ever after," and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try. "It should be hair-raising," added Howl.
"And you'll exploit me," Sophie said.
"And then you'll cut up all my suits to teach me.”
