from a customer's review on Audible.com of Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle: "The heroine grew on me, though, so I felt hooked enough to continue listening."
My own favorite catch, in a draft of a Horn Book Guide review, was "this book follows sixteen-year-old Karen, a stalking victim." Then there was the time we almost printed Magid Fasts for Ramadan (a picture book by Mary Matthews and E.B. Lewis, about a Muslim boy who wants to join the adults in the Ramadan fast) as Magid Feasts for Ramadan . . . .
