Her emotionally gripping titles include the popular Baxter family novels, the 9/11 Series, Even Now, Ever After, and Between Sundays. Karen and her husband, Don, live in the Pacific Northwest with their six children, three of whom are adopted from Haiti.

My personal thoughts on this book: Asher is absolutely loving this book. He has had his dad read it to him several times and Riley likes to join in sometimes too. I have read the book to him as well, but only once. I guess he likes it better when his daddy reads it. His favorite part is when they talk about wrestling, because that is one of Asher’s favorite things to do with his daddy. I thought this was a great book and I see my husband having to read it many many more times!
