I haven't read much, but gave the book 4 stars from the first paragraph. I'm sure I'll up it to 5 by the end.

Hi! I'm the author of this book, and a lifelong user of the Multnomah County Library. I'm so happy to give back to MCL's rich tradition by donating a copy of my book. Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy!
