Suzanne Fisher Staples

Author Suzanne Fisher Staples recommends True Believer by Virginia Euwer Wolff. “This is simply one of the most beautifully written books I’ve ever read. It’s subtle, complex, and intelligent. It also is an eloquent statement about the power of language.”

True Believer  (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2001) is recommended for ages 12 and up.
