If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Starla Claudelle yet, allow me to introduce you.
She is 9 years old, has red hair, gets on restriction a lot, and lives in Cayuga Springs, Mississippi. You can read about her summer of figuring out some stuff about life, and family, and people in general in Whistling Past the Graveyard. Go request it at your library now. I surely and purely do believe you will thank me for this.
