And really, this isn’t so much a “Happy Birthday, SHINE!” post as it is a heartfelt “Thank you” to Jeri Smith-Ready for bringing us a story that has effected us in such a way that a whole community has been built around it. Around her.
And thank you for giving our favorite series an ending that made us feel hopeless & hopeful, incredibly sad & ecstatic, but mostly, utterly fulfilled.
Now. Go read SHINE and then come back and dish about all it's epicness at THIS POST designated for spoiler discussions.(DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK UNTIL YOU'RE READY FOR SPOILERS)
