Great piece! I have been excited to reread things as I introduce my kid to them. So far, she’s only 4. I have found that things I remembered fondly often seem problematic, like I said in my comment about The Giving Tree.

I LOVED The Giver when I was 12. Oh gosh, is a reread going to change my opinion of it?
