Sangu Mandanna stopped by Epic Reads this week with a blog post about her new book The Lost Girl. Here's a preview:

"‘That which we call a rose/By any other name would smell as sweet.’ 

It’s an old Shakespearean cliché,
meaning what matters is what something is, not what it’s called. A name doesn’t change anything.

Names are completely irrelevant. Um, no.
I point you to every fairy story out there, where a single name can hold complete power over its possessor.

I point you to a teacher friend of mine, who says certain names ring alarm bells in her mind. I believe names are a part of us.

They’re not everything, not by a long shot, but we’re born with them, and we grow up with them, and when we hear them called in the street we look around."
