The response to the ARC’s arrival on social media was incredibly exciting, and THEN the Queen of beautiful, lyrical writing, Kiran Millwood Hargrave tweeted THIS:

To find out Kiran had read an early copy was AMAZING, and to receive praise from her was simply overwhelming!

It was a wonderful and surreal day. And now there are only about 150 days until publication of final copies!
