After finishing a project I always wonder, “Will someone understand what I was trying to convey?”
I was particularly pleased when I ran across the KidsReads.com review of No Castles Here. Toward the end they said:
“With all these elements, NO CASTLES HERE would be an ambitious project for any author. Remarkably, Bauer fulfills the task seemingly with ease, resulting in a story in which magic can seem real but in which the real magic occurs in the relationships between people, in the truly remarkable things that happen when a community bonds together. Augie is a real character who screws up, tells lies and turns his back on people who care for him, but nevertheless has a good heart, particularly once he learns to trust and care for the people who also value him.”
Yes!! Woo hoo!
It made my day.
