Friend Ashly recommended a book to me on Christmas, and I want to quote it here for you. Of course this is a book for younger readers, but it’s pretty much the most adorable thing I’ve read in recent years. Every little girl should probably read it, because we’re all a bit more ordinary than the girls around us tend to be.
“… for though she was ordinary, she possessed health, wit, courage, charm and cheerfulness. But because she was not beautiful, no one ever seemed to notice these other qualities, which is so often the way of the world,” (M.M. Kaye 23).
