'No Matter Who You Are'

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.
