If you've ever felt confused about the plotline of Hayao Miyazaki's movie and want more of Howl's overdramatic eccentricities, check out the book it was based on! It has the same vibes but it's funny, contextual, and this version of Howl and Sophie are, dare I say, better than the movie!

Cilla Lee-Jenkins is a precocious, funny, irreverent kid with a huge imagination, so it only stands to reason that she's going to be a Best Selling Author Extraordinaire. But first she has to withstand the trials of second grade, navigate friendship, endure weird questions from strangers about "what" she is (um... a future author?), and worst of all: her mom is pregnant, and Cilla is NOT excited about it. This book is full of heart, humor, and hope, and it made me laugh out loud AND cry, IN FRONT OF STRANGERS. Also, the author is local and delightful!
