I haven't read a young adult book in years, but this happens to be the one other novel by the author of my favorite book from my teen years, The Door in the Lake. The Door in the Lake captivated and moved me as a teen and I've never forgotten it.

Nancy Butts has had her head stuck in a book ever since she learned to read--and she's been writing stories for just as long.

She published her first poem at age ten, and decided after reading Madeleine L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time" in fifth grade that she wanted to be a writer, too. But she never thought she was good enough, so by the sixth grade she decided to be an astronomer instead: and after
