Before I introduce you to today’s friend, I must warn you. The minute, the MINUTE, you finish one of Rebecca Stead’s books, you will turn right to the first page to read it again. Her stories are double-helixes of words — rich, dense and full of the very stuff of life. (She also has the coolest website so be sure and check it out!)
Her newest is the much-acclaimed Liar and Spy.
Read it! But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
