I read this book ages ago, but recently had the chance to meet the author. I was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Holt talked to me for about ten minutes, and I found that I liked her. We talked about writing mostly, and she gave me some advice.

My Louisiana Sky is the only book that I have read by her that I have liked (I did not like When Zachary Beaver Came to Town). It is about a girl whose parents are both mentally challenged, but she isn’t. Through out the book, she has to do deal with a lot of prejudice and decide whether or not to continue living with her parents or with her aunt.

I still can’t believe how nice she was!
