As part of the fabulous YA Highway’s Road Trip Wednesday, I’m writing about what song my WIP would be if it were a song and not, er, a novel. For MZM, that’s kind of a no-brainer: John Frusciante’s “The Will to Death.”
I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this book. We read it each year to our children on the night before Easter. It’s about a little brown mama bunny with twenty-one babies to care for, who dreams of becoming an Easter bunny. She’s made fun of and mocked by all snobby aristocratic bunnies and all the fleet-footed male jack rabbits, but the skills, speed, and heart that make her such a good mama are exactly what make her dream come true. And in the end, she earns her own pair of gold running shoes! How cool is that?
