A few weeks ago, I recommended Tamora Pierce’s Bekka Cooper: Terrier as a great read. Last night, I ran into a very precocious and brilliant eleven-year-old I know well but hadn’t seen in a few months. She knows I like to read, and so recent books we’d both liked came up. She mentioned Bekka Cooper: Terrier and said she’d read it “a bunch of times” and loved the book. Pretty cool. Nice to know my taste is in line with a bright kid’s taste!
