To Morgan Matson: Thank you for Since You've Been Gone, a novel that squished together a few of my favourite things (friendship, lists, scriptwriting, family, and traveling) and made something so sweet and relatable and fun. It screamed about the importance of not giving up on your friends and of growing as a person without changing for other people - two things I was glad to be reminded of. From me. xo
To Alice Pung: Laurinda was a novel that forced me to think about multiculturalism and about how hard it can be not to change; thank you for that. Yes, I spent a while hating the school of Laurinda, hating Lucy Lam, hating the double standards, and tearing my hair out at the injustice, but maybe that was the point? A lot of the time life is hard work and you may regret how you've changed. Thank you for telling Lucy's story so beautifully and honestly. Thank you that she's willing to work and fight and that she doesn't have all the answers. From me. xo
