Today's teaser ~ Letters from Rapunzel

Today's teaser comes from the YA novel Letters from Rapunzel by Sara Lewis Holmes, 2007, which won the first annual HarperCollins Ursula Nordstrom Fiction Contest.

"I forgot that letters are different from a phone conversation. Your words are right there, in black and white, and can be studied, and thought about, and shared. Which is a good thing, if your words are wonderful, like my dad's poems, or maybe like his letters to you, but not when you wish you could take them back" (p. 51).

What an excellent teaser! I write a letter every day and write poetry, too. Sounds like my kind of book!
