Ever notice how sometimes you make friends just by being around them a lot? And sometimes you make friends by going through a lot with them? Maybe you both faced the same challenges, for example, or found yourselves in a tough situation you had to work together on to find your way through. And just maybe those friends began to feel more like family. Join Texas authors Kathi Appelt, Varian Johnson, and Christina Soontornvat as they discuss the deep friendships the characters in their latest books make, and the trials that test and bond those friendships.Kathi Appelt, Varian Johnson, Christina Soontornvat, Once Upon a Camel, Playing the Cards You’re Dealt, A Wish in the Dark, All Thirteen: The Incredible Cave Rescue of the Thai Boys’ Soccer Team
