And, yes, for everyone who has grown up loving the David Bowie film, this is the book for you! S. Jae-Jones’s Wintersong has met all my expectations and more.

Earlier this week, we went to see Takuto: Ballet at the Quarry!

I’ve always wanted to go to the ballet at the Quarry Amphitheatre in City Beach.
