It's how I learned to spell Mississippi.

3sapphire in regards to your comments:(view spoiler)[ I feel that there should have been a few extra chapters to tie things up nicely such as finding her body etc. You would think that they would have investigated the step-dad at the time but it seemed she did have a 'reputation' so they just assumed something happened while she was with a boy, which unfortunately turned out to be Larry. It did seem like the author just forgave 32 for holding back information important to solving a crime. That should have been investigated more.
did it take you long to figure out that Larry and 32 were brothers? I knew it as soon as Larry's dad picked the mom and 32 up on the side of the road. During this story period, that just wasn't done. (hide spoiler)]

Hey Charlene! At the start of your spoiler type the less than sign the word spoiler then the greater than sign. At the end of your spoiler type the less than sign forward slash the word spoiler than the greater than sign. There are no spaces in between them.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for reminding me! I meant to post it, and completely forgot! Too much going on in my life right now! AAAHHHH!"
LOL! No problem at all!
Michelle..not sure if you realize it or not but you have two 2012 goodreads challenge threads going :)
Also I see we have the A-Z Author Challenge are we going to have the A-Z Title as well? If so where do we post it?
Excellent book! Finished it last night. I loved the writing style and characters. I immediately felt connected to Larry and Silas. Yes some parts were predictable but the story is great and I'm glad I read it.
LOL! That is a bunch! didn't know the Kindle/Nook could hold that many! I've been thinking about getting an ereader for a while but I like having the books on my shelves :)
Happy New Year from one addict to another!
Hey everyone! Hope you have a great day and the hangover isn't that bad!
I need to be doing to my house what Michelle is doing to the group..organize and clean! Been down in my back for several days so I haven't got anything done and I go back to work on Thursday.
Plan on finishing Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
that I started at 4 this morning.
talk to you later!
lol! I usually have 2-3 books going at once. I divide each book into 4 sections based on the number of chapters. My daily goal is to read at least one section from one book each day. I read anywhere I can...30 min lunch break, bathroom, during commercials, bedtime, bathtime lol! My name is Liberty and I am a book addict :)
I am challenging myself to 200 books this year...double last years. I can do it!
Good luck Michelle!
I ended up with 109 for the year. My challenge was 100. I'm planning on doubling it for the new year. Fingers crossed.
Liberty's New Year, New Beginnings Challenge
Duration: 1/1/12- 1/31/12
1. New Series: Shiver
2. New Novel: Before I Fall
3. New Author: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
You're welcome :)
OMG! I thought this was the best book ever. I know a lot of people had difficulty with the jumping back and forth between time but I didn't. I really enjoyed it but was most disappointed with the movie. Had I watched it before I read the book, I most likely would not have read it.
Sorry you didn't like it :(
Ah a new series to start :) Looking forward to this one...put it on hold tonight.
Hey Jessica- if you go to your post above where you asked the question click on your name which is in green. It will take you to a new page with all your comments in the group on it.
