The Friendship Doll

Kirby Larson is a master at historical fiction.

I am in awe.

The Friendship Doll follows the journey of a Japanese doll as she makes her way from one owner to the next over the years.

The history is seamlessly woven throughout.

Each character's unique tale grabs you from the get-go.

Kirby isn't afraid to tell the tale the way it needs to be told. (See why I need an editor?)

She's not afraid to try something totally unique (i.e., the doll's point of view).

Loved this one.
