Stephanie Parent, Reader and Writer

Stephanie Parent is a graduate of the Master of Professional Writing program at USC and attended the Baltimore School for the Arts as a piano major. She moved to Los Angeles because of Francesca Lia Block's WEETZIE BAT books, which might give you some idea of how much books mean to her. She also loves dogs, books about dogs, and sugary coffee drinks both hot and cold.

The Spindlers

The Spindlers - Lauren Oliver, Iacopo Bruno Lauren Oliver is a beautiful writer, but I'm being harsh on this book because her other middle grade novel, Leisl and Po, was so very amazing. I was all set to give this three or four stars, but a few plot points in the last 50 pages just seemed unsettlingly similar to Neil Gaiman's CORALINE, so I really can't give it any more than two.Oh, and another plot point really reminded me of THE BORROWERS, too.
