I finished Having Faith in the Polar Girls’ Prison this weekend, fully in love with the main character. It was much less heartbreaking than I feared. One of those books that ends too soon, and you wind up reading the acknowledgements, the author bio, and the illustration credit on the back flap, just because you can’t quite bear to put the book down yet. (Does that happen to anyone other than me?)
During my neurotic aprés-read, I came across the following quote From Bill Gaston on the back cover:
“If ever I need a guide on the dark side of the moon, I want it to be Cathleen With.”
Isn’t that a wonderful compliment?
