Thursday Thought: Fearful World, Courageous Choice
Posted by Avalon Robinson on 2/27/2020 to
No one likes being afraid. I’m not talking about that adrenaline rush, thrill related fear that you get from riding a roller coaster, bungee jumping, or going on a date. I’m referring to capital F fear. The kind of fear that makes your heart pound, your vision narrow and your muscles twitch with anticipation. There’s not a person on this earth who enjoys the sensation of genuinely believing they are in mortal peril.

Louisiana's Way Home, Kate DiCamillo
I’ll start with this. You can never go wrong with Kate DiCamillo. I’ve loved her work since I was first introduced to Because of Winn Dixie as a kid. It was only in recent years, however, that I’ve explored the rest of her works, some of which have been released only in the last couple of years. This is an author that isn’t going anywhere any time soon and we are all the luckier for that.
