This was a book I stayed up late to read, because reading it felt like sitting comfortably by the fire, talking with my nicest and funniest friends, all of whom had uplifting and sometimes hilarious thoughts to share. As the story progressed, not only did I become more curious about how all the characters' adventures would turn out, but I found myself thinking along the same philosophical lines as they were, regarding how to make one's life happier.

I have been racking my brain with trying to put a finger on how I would describe this series and why I enjoyed reviewing it. I have decided this series reminds me of the television show "Seinfeld".

This is a fun sequel to Letters to Wishing Rock. I listened to it 2 years ago and was thrilled to see Stucky wrote more about the quirky people of Wishing Rock. This book is a compilation of e-mails. Most of the characters live in the very small town of Wishing Rock. Everyone knows everyone and they do everything together. I love each and every character in these books. I especially love the romance between Ruby and Ed.

I like this series in general, the characters are interesting and the concept of the town is fun; however, there are a few areas that I'm not as crazy about - the subject of conversation between characters is sometimes redundant and I find that I like a bit more of a descriptive writing style.

I felt like it was a few short stories strung together with a lot of preachy philosophizing. I enjoyed the first book more.
