Blueberry Girl


3rd October 2015 | by Rachael Rogan

This book is one of those books that, upon reading, you desperately want to buy for everyone. You want them to read it, and get the same goose bumps. You want them to read it to their child, and you want that child to understand how wonderful and special they are. You want the adult to read the book and feel how wonderful and special a child is, and how precious life is. All this from a book? Yes. Am I being schmaltzy? Yes. Is it deserved? YES. Buy it. Give it to everyone who has a child. Gift it to yourself because you WERE a child. In short: this book. Do it.
