Aw, yeah. Lulu is adorably loopy AND surprisingly insightful. I love that about her.

A little weird because Lulu is black. But I get what you mean. Haha.

I really wish the third book was better because the series started so strongly. Boo.

I have not! This was my first L'Engle, but I am definitely planning to check out more. I'll definitely keep that one in mind.

Some people have responded to it favorably, but it is seriously not what I expected. And I would never recommend my daughter read it.

Jack's Native American heritage is not touched on at all in Rapunzel's Revenge, so it was a really nice surprise to see that he is Native American in his own book.

I am almost done! I'm going to probably go up to the next level. I aimed low (for me) just because I am all over the place with my reading at any given time. I'm also way behind on my reviews, but that's neither here nor there...

Thanks for the award! Very sweet. Yay.

Yeah, lots of people on Goodreads love the artwork, but I think my stylistic preferences are just different.

The race and gender stuff is pretty subtle, but it did make me think about how true the surrogates are as a representation of people. What do they really look like? And, more importantly, does it matter?

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one as well.

Yeah, Sarah and her baby's dad were ace. I wish we had seen more of them as a couple-couple.

The brother was annoying in lots of ways, but I don't have an older brother either.
