So I just reread this book. Guess what?
It's just as awesome as before, maybe even more so. ^____^
I love the way that Shannon Hale writes and how she describes everything and makes it all seem really pretty but really real at the same time.
Although in the interview at the back of the book, I have to disagree about what she said about Harry Potter all those years ago. THE HUNGER GAMES' MAIN CHARACTER IS A GIRL AND it was one of the most highly anticipated book-into-movies this year. So. There can be girl protagonists in highly popular YA novels, too.
