Grace Lin

Author and illustrator Grace Lin recommends One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia. “Have you ever had your best friend tell you an incredible story that you would never believe if it weren’t your best friend telling it? That’s this book. When you read it, Delphine becomes your best friend and her crazy summer is the story you believe and never want to end!”

One Crazy Summer (Amistad, 2010) is recommended for ages 8-12.

Be sure to check out Lin’s fantasy Starry River of the Sky (Little Brown & Company, 2012).
