Great new read…

I finished a Y.A. fantasy book from the library in record time. The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester is an absolutely beautiful story. I must admit that I was tempted to read on when I saw the quote about the book from none other than Stephanie Meyer right on the cover. She says, “it’s the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men. I was smiling the whole time (except for the part where I cried). Prepare to have your heart warmed.”
I was so very moved by this book. The teaser on the back ends with the main character Piper sharing that before she gets into that story, she’ll probably need to tell you a thing or two about a thing or two…”. I like that.
I simply must share a treasure of a paragraph nestled neatly in the middle of the book just in case you don’t read it yourself.
(excerpt from page 275)
“There is a place deep, deep inside every person that is hidden and hard to find. If things get bad enough and life gets too hard, though, some people will go to that place and never come back from it. Certainly, all outward appearances will suggest otherwise. They will look as they always did. They may even act somewhat like their old selves, but the truth is, the REAL TRUTH is that they are hiding in this place deep inside where no one can touch or hurt them anymore.”
Kids books are not just for kids, are they now?
