A very special review 😭

I imagine it’s always a mixed experience reading reviews of your work. I know for me there’s definitely some stomach-clenching beforehand–has the reviewer “received” the book in the way it was intended? Did it touch them and affect them? Sometimes there are wonderful surprises, like when a reviewer is able to articulate your project in a way that is so perfectly intelligent and emotionally astute, and that you never could have actually articulated yourself. Reading this review of HONEY AND ME on Emily Schneider’s Imaginary Elevators blog has been all that and more. I immediately sent it to my agent and my editor and we’ve all been 😭 because it just feels like our project is so SEEN.
