I was in the third grade. I was afraid that I was going to be one of those people who just don’t like to read. Coming from a family of readers, I was disappointed by this possibility. I read that book in a matter of days and never looked back! —Tally Draher Tanner
I’ll never forget it. —Jennifer G. M. Zerby
