Starry River of the Sky - Grace Lin Grace Lin's novels are really in their own space. There's a kind of magic in the way she works the larger story together with traditional stories and her own original paintings. Beyond that, they're just wonderfully written, beautifully woven stories, filled with interesting characters and gripping moments. The kids loved hearing this (and Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, before), and I really enjoyed reading it with them. The story just rings in your ears, and fades very slowly, and it's a really nice space to be in.
