Am I the only one who finds grapefruit spoons terrifying? What kind of monster would look at a spoon and go, "I know, let's SERRATE THIS."
On Interview with Dr. Susan Robinson, One of the Last Four Doctors in America to Openly Provide Third-Trimester Abortions
Dr. Robinson, you are stunning, you are a hero. Thanks, Jia, for doing this interview. I'll definitely be referring people to it.
@MandyMcAwesome Or perhaps...best INCISION ever?
@Linette This sounds like an excellent way to begin. "Mom and Dad, we promise this is not an elaborate ruse..."

I loved E.L. Konigsburg with all my heart, and also "The Mixed-Up Files" - but "The View From Saturday" (her second Newbery winner) is the book which I always buy in used bookstores to give to everyone I care about. Best book. Get it in you.
