Hi Gabriella,My name is Ebony. How Are you? I have just finished reading The garden of Empress Cassia and I am doing a book report on it which is due tomorrow, (arrrrgh) and I am not nearly ready for it. I really liked the Garden of Empress Cassia. You are a very talented writer (as you would know already judging by all the terrific awards you have). I am in Grade Six and I have a fantastic school librarian who recommended your books to me. I have also read The Pearl of Tiger Bay which is my official favourite book in the world.
