“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”
This was honestly one of the best middle-grade fantasy books, I have ever read :) It was whimsical, magical and so fun :)

Heartfelt thanks go to Neil Harris and his erstwhile comrades at Commodore, who went crazy hooking up a desperate writer's computer to one of their printers, and who helped her hit her deadline.The kicker for me is this bizarrely liberal concept of bullying. Thirteen-year-old Nita (short for Juanita) is routinely beat up by the more popular girls, leaving her with black eyes, swollen knee joints from targeted stomping, and more. Her parents are, like, shrug, "whatchoo gonna do?". To me this is far beyond bullying, this is felony assault, and today I would hope that the parents are calling the police and suing the crap out of the assaulter's parents. Be Best, people.
