    I loved The Tiger’s Wife so much, and the writer is so young! Very impressed.

    I started The Tiger’s Wife — it’s good. Just finished Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (kids’ book — Grace Lin) and it was incredible. Did you recommend that, at one point? We read it for Oregon Battle of the Books — they always have good lists. Google ’em if you’re interested.

    ps i hope you enjoy my book. and thanks for your support, mamacita.
