    I haven’t read any of her stories before, but my friend has read some of her stories. She said that her stories were awesome. So, I’d love to read one of her stories.

  2. Hi Alexis!

    Give her a try! My 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Crawford, read A Wrinkle in Time to my class, and all these years later, I still remember it! Mrs. Fleet or I can help you find it, OK?

    Mrs. Hamilton 🙂
