A Different Kind of Book Review: Dolls Behaving Badly by Cinthia Ritchie

The sweet aroma of warm cinnamon coffee cake circled the kitchen, enveloping the cousins as they sat in their usual spots around the table.  Randy was pouring coffee into plain white stoneware mugs.  Mary had conceded to using the mugs instead of the usual delicate teacups she preferred.  Randy wasn’t clumsy by nature but he […]
