Blessings to you on this marvelous adventure! I look forward to reading about your progress....
oh, wow. Just read the sample...I'm putting it on the list! One of my father's favorite sayings was "When you are up to your neck in alligators, it is hard to remember that the original goal was to drain the swamp."

The book in the original review is Shadow Walkers by Brent Hartinger. The book that she thought I'd like but was out of stock is Hero by Perry Moore. The book I ended up reading is Will Grayson,will grayson by John Green and David Levithan. My apologies, Sara! I thought the link in the blog post might start a discussion ;)
