When a book makes you fly (The Tiger Rising)

I read The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo in 32 minutes.  It was like a dream. 

DiCamillo does not belabor things in her books.  She sketches the story in a way that makes it live, and then, when it is over, she leaves you, and even if it's only been 32 minutes of your life, you are in a different place than you were when you started. 

I want to be a writer like this.
