Isn't this a beautiful page? Thirteen-year-old Danielle Basista of Fairport Harding Middle School in Fairport Harbor, Ohio writes with such vivid imagery and rhyme: "Are you shy like a turtle/Burrowing yourself in a shell/Or talkative like a parrot/Repeating secrets as if they're yours to tell?" In a separate note, Danielle writes that after reading The Year of Goodbyes, "I have so much respect for your mother." As do I. Thank you, Danielle.
