Countdown to Publication: Fun Fact 58

A big challenge in writing the book was "aging" Rachel. She is 11-years-old when the book begins, and 17-years-old at the book's end. I was so glad to hear from bookseller Sarah Tavis of Orca Books that it worked. She said: "The Girl Who Fell From the Sky is stunning. I am struck by Rachel and Brick—how she showed their growth, their developing minds, emotional growth, their growing up process. Durrow managed to "grow them up" but kept the core of who they are as beings. I would know Rachel at 17 from what I learned of her at 12, and Brick, too. He was a particularly endearing character." Thanks Sarah!
