    1. Amanda, I’ll send you the copy I read. Since Beth won she gets the new one. I read so gently you’ll never know I was there, honest!

  1. Sounds good!

    I’m enjoying all these book reviews of yours, by the way. After years of mourning the loss of my ‘reading time’, I finally decided I needed to set a good example to my kids by taking the time out to read every day. Just finished Kage Baker’s “Hotel Under the Sand” this morning, and on our next trip to the mall will look again for Tsunami Blue.
