Our shadows even
glow with the energy and
hope of our next step.
Lorie Ann Grover, 2010
In the meantime, read for hope and read for pleasure. Find authors' greatest life works and listen. Expand your worldview. Find The Book Thief to relish the most beautiful words, and see hope in man’s history in the darkest hours. Read Out of the Dust and see the tenacity that runs through a girl like you.
Take time to read backwards. Without embarrassment, hold onto those middle grade novels that you loved. Dip back into the Island of the Blue Dolphins, cry through Charlotte’s Web again, and explore the universe further with Miss Pickerell.Know now, that in the future, you will sign your own novels, “There’s hope. Look.” So, go read. Find hope. "
