And people wonder why children today are so desensitized to violence. He liked it and asked me to read it.
Having haters does mean you are doing something right, but only if that comes hand-in-hand with people encouraging you. That she is named for a tuber is important on two levels. People will respect you a hell of a lot more if you are confident in your motives and beliefs. This is the foundational principle of the series.
