Spring Transformations: Books About Inspiring Transformations

Spring Transformations: Books About Inspiring Transformations

By: Heidi Herald

It’s been a long time coming, but it is now officially Spring! Spring is a time for renewal and rebirth as the world awakens from the long winter. Celebrate the return of Spring with these seven books about not so typical transformations. Although these books cover a wide range of styles and topics, they all have characters whose lives are altered by their experiences. Read and be inspired. Warning:  Some books are more inspiring than others. Watch out for unexpected transformations.
