Alas, my very own--HOT OFF THE PRESS--copy of my friend, Shawna Yang Ryan's book. Water Ghosts hit the stores this month and is already causing a mighty stir. Check it out When I first opened my package (all smiles), I took out Water Ghosts ...instinctively, I could not help but smell it, open it, stare at it, rub it, hug it, kiss it, and re-read some of my favorite passages. Even the jacket tells part of the story and is so very well done. I'm so looking forward to starting from the beginning, again, to the end. I have so much pride!
Then, later that night, I discovered someone had moved my book. It was where I had left it, but not in the position I placed it. So, I stepped out of the room for a minute, peeked in through an archway Gera built--it leads into the room, but sometimes we cover it with a sheer curtain. Lo and behold, there was a presence there either trying to steal my book or communicate with the ghosts in it. When I pulled the curtain...it fled.
Water Ghosts is just that good!
