Liesl and Po - Lauren Oliver This book came along at exactly the right time for me. I adored the: *lovely, lyrical prose and descriptive language. *extensive, quirky and adorable cast of characters. *unique interpretation of ghosts/the afterlife. *gorgeous illustrations. *touching and sensitive exploration of grief. *magic! *story! *Bundle. *moving and powerful author's note.I had a couple of minor gripes with certain plot points (I would have liked to know more about Po, for example) but overall Liesl and Po was a beautiful book - the kind that makes me want to tell EVERYONE I KNOW to read it. Now. So what are you waiting for?
