Storytime: Meeting the Beveres

Those of you who have known/followed me for a little while will know that Lisa Bevere‘s book Girls with Swords had a massive impact on my life (I wrote about its impact here, here, and here).  Those of you who do know me ask me about this story ALL THE TIME so this post is for y’all.  And for me and my sanity, so I don’t have to keep repeating myself.😂
