Pop American educators may be stirred by more than the Harry Potter ‘crisis’ near the climax …

…very well written – Ms. Kim seems a “natural” at conveying very unnatural situations and psyches.

She’s quite an “emotional writer” who conveys emotion accurately without emotional distortion.

I am so impressed! Continue reading
