I will never, ever forget about you.”

“I've always loved reading. When I was in first grade I became fascinated by time travel in the Magic Treehouse series. My love for magic continued into the second grade when I was reading Harry Potter, and then the following year I really got interested in history.

The stars weren’t the only spectators closely observing Lily, Wendy, and Michael.”
