I finished reading the third book in the Travelling Pants series...sniff...sniff. Now to pack the book up and ship it off to my daughter across the country. I love reading a book that I can feel the characters' feelings. This author does a great job getting us into the head of each girl. It is written simply but packed with emotion.
Sometimes I think writers strive to use big words and ornate speech when just writing it in a reader's own language - the language of the heart- making it possible to cry when you resist and to laugh when you are having the most rotten day of all days - well, that is the kind of writing I would want to say was my best.
