Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
Newbery Honor this year. I can definitely see why–Lin takes Chinese folk tales and weaves them together into something which is new and fresh, but which also feels authentic. This would be great for slightly younger readers, or anyone who enjoys traditional stories. [Feb. 2010]
