My mom's a fifth grade teacher. She offered for one of her students to read the book. Which is great! I would love to get a kid's perspective on my book--I don't feel comfortable asking my own students to read it--and it's a bit young for them anyway--so getting a high reading level fifth grader to read my book would be just brilliant.
But the father of the girl is ultra conservative and worried about the magic in the book, and thinking about keeping it from her.
I've been banned before I've been published!!
And to top it off--I'm very Christian and intended part of the message of the novel to have subtle Christian overtones!
