I had the chance to visit the MIM (musical instrument museum) in North Phoenix over the holiday break. It is beautiful!!! Reminded me so much of Amie’s story and then some. 
Thanks to my friend @jmeewong for exploring with me!! 💕

We opened @rrremylai’s newest mg graphic novel, Ghost Book, on Tuesday. And within 24 hours, all 4 members of my family had read it individually. 

We devoured it like hungry ghosts. 👻

Loved everything about it! The cute Floof, the significance of July’s name and existence, the feel-good friendship, the adventure!, the funny faces (trademark of Remy), and of course, the scary hungry ghosts. 

Must read!! Five stars!!!
