One of the most exquisite of pleasures, and one that’s too often overlooked, is the joy of giving well-deserved praise.
I’m a gold-star junkie myself, and maybe that’s why I love the opportunity to give good praise.
Recently, I was able to do this. In the New York Times Book Review, I wrote about Kristin Cashore’s new book, Bitterblue. As I’ve often noted, I love children’s literature and young-adult literature, and Cashore is one of the best YA novelists writing today.
It gave me such tremendous happiness to sing the praises of someone whose work I admire so much, and to help other readers find their way to it.
