  2. Dear Kelly,
    I just finished reading The Girl Who Drank the Moon and the Witch’s Boy, back to back. I will make sure that my daughters get an opportunity to read these, when they’re old enough. Because these are the kind of books that would have made my eyes sparkle when I was 8 or 10 (and still do, actually), that would have pushed my imagination to embrace new lands and new ideas, and that would have made me dream of writing stories as powerful, magical and entrancing. I still hope that, one day, I’ll be able to. Thank you for your beautifully crafted stories!
