I have a Pippi set on my shelf, too. :)Oh cool on the Peter Pan retelling. Look forward to your thoughts on that.
Well you had to get Without a Summer, it has a man in a striped freaking vest.Speaking of velvety covers...Vinegar Girl. I was rubbing against the cover like a cat.I can't wait to hear how Exit Pursued by Bear is! It's a retelling of Winter's Tale....so not light hearted. But probably a nice gut punch. :)
Too true, it really was a necessity. Who passes up a striped vest?!And yes, definitely not light-hearted. But if your approached to a story about date rape is to name it "Exit, pursued by a bear," I have to think you've got a good handle on dark or self-deprecating humor, to balance out the dark.
Tell me all your thoughts. Let's be best friends.
