    Squee!!! I saw the cover of Keeper of the Isis Light and jumped out of my chair. I read this book in the 5th Grade (a couple of years after it was published) and then won a school write-your-own-book contest by (sort of) plagiarizing it (Not a proud moment, but I was only eleven…). It’s one of those stories that I’ve never forgotten, but could never remember what it was called. I am SO excited you guys found it for me!!! (off to Amazon right next.)

    Bitter Greens — love the cover art! I almost never put a book on my Goodreads to-read list based on the cover alone, but the cover plus Rapunzel retelling? Done.
