If you cracked me open and looked into my heart you would find a copy of this book. This book feels like a hug. 

While I personally am not a fan for allegorical fantasy discrimination, I have to admit that this is the exception that proves the rule. Every character is perfect and lovable. As someone who wants to foster children one day, this book was extremely touching.

This book is just what I needed! To be perfectly honest, I'm not one for light-hearted books. But this had just the right amount of magic to make it such an easy read. It felt like a pixar movie playing in my brain while reading it. I'm sure I will reread it again at some point and will definitely be recommending it others along the way.
.
I've been reading so many adult fantasy/academic/long series books, it was a breath of fresh air to read a stand alone book with a surprising amount of introspection. Such a delightful book!

"The things we fear the most are often the things we should fear the least. It's irrational, but it's what makes us human. And if we're able to conquer those fears, then there is nothing we're not capable of."
