Brittani Nicole Case: Your summary of the story is what got me to read it. You have a way with words and with humor. I didn't really see the strong-willed version of Cordelia.

Kaysey Ann Tan: Oh my god! I'm her fan. I've read most of her books, not only once or twice but lots of times.

Reading her books makes me wond...
