Hi. I'm Regina Philange.

books and cleverness … there are more important things.

“Put your faith in what you most believe in. Two worlds, one family.”

And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.

These are my books. I like stories with magic powers in them. Either in kingdoms on Earth or on foreign planets. Usually I prefer a girl hero, but not always. (Moonrise Kingdom, 2012)

It takes a person who has suffered unbearable pain to recognize it in another.
