My mom glanced in the rearview mirror to check on me, and asked, “Honey, are you ok? Are you going to be sick? Do you need me to pull over?” I was sobbing. Jack, Laura’s beloved brindle bulldog, had died in the book, and it had broken my tiny little heart. That was just the first of many times a book deeply affected me. Yay books!” —NorthWolfe
