  1. Thanks. My sister did it after she had stated that she couldn't draw :O It is eerily like me. I'm sorry to hear about all the catastrophes. Hope everything is going slightly better now
  2. You changed your avatar! I really like it, did you do it? Been meaning to write to you, it's been a stressful couple of weeks. Dad has been in ICU, and then my parents were in the recent earthquake in Napa, California. Everyone okay, but my nerves have just been a wreck. Hope you're doing well!
  3. Thank you for that info . Have a good day.
  4. I'll be totally honest, I don't remember whether or not Spirits in the Wire is appropriate for a 14-year-old. I want to say yes, but I know that many of Charles de Lints characters deal with past drug addiction, sexual and physical abuse, prostitution, etc. I don't remember if SitW deals with any of that. None of those themes are ever written about in a positive way, simply ugly parts of character's pasts. It's what I love about his writing, he deals with dark gritty things, and throws his characters into magical/mythological situations to help them grow. I do know he's written a couple books for younger readers, Little Grrl Lost is one, but I haven't read it so I don't know if it's any good. He's a phenomenal writer, one of the best imo. If you've ever read and enjoyed Neil Gaiman, you'll like Charles de Lint.
  5. Thank you for the book suggestion. Just a question-is it suitable and readable for a 14 year old?
