I’m starting a new series on here about the books that influenced me growing up.
These are the books that shaped my brain. Gave me my fears, values, and passions.
The Julie Secret Ingredients!
Harry and The Lady Next Door
by Gene Zion

When he bites the piano leg in frustration, I never felt more understood.
I swear to god, I am this dog.
