Dingo - Charles De Lint
- Young Adult - A wonderful young adult fantasy love story. I've been a
fan for more decades then I care to admit, and this is an interesting
blend of the mythologies from Canada and Australia. Great characters
with no stereo-types. Best of all the parents involved do not come off
as clueless.
