so rad! i have a similar story but it's longer and the main character is a sad flower. LOLOLOL
that sounds like something i'd like to read.
I'll try to dig it up. My mom sent a copy of it to Stephen King and he wrote back. You can see the postcard on my facebook.
oh yeah. i remember seeing it. that itself is a good story.
i was as least hoping it would make the short list for the newbery award. didn't happen.
