Hello! Today we have an 11x11 puzzle titled "Just Between Us" from Shannon Rapp. It's about a 3/5 difficulty, and we can't decide what kind of friend the grid looks like. Maybe a sloth poking its head up to say hi?
Shannon adds: "I'm so happy with my second puzzle for Lil AVC X. I especially love the clues for 24- and 30-Across. I also invite you to check out my puzzle blog where I have lots more fun midis, most recently "Waterfalls" that I made with Will Eisenberg. Please also consider subscribing (it's free!) to Daily Crossword Links, where we publish a list every morning with all the crosswords of the day. I want to hear what you liked about this puzzle; you can find me on twitter. Thank you for solving!"
Next week from us: midis from Madeline Kaplan, and a special guest!
