Blackbird: A Childhood Lost and Found
I did not care for this book. The child's voice did not ring true. Not sure what all the great ratings on Amazon are all about.

I'm really not a mystery fan, but I had heard that S.J. Bolton was a great writer and I have to say that about half-way through I was really hooked!

Hurry Down Sunshine
A father's quest to understand and come to terms with his 15-year old daughter's sudden "crack up." Honest and frustrating.

I love Mary Karr. Gorgeous writing. Her crazy family always makes me laugh, but I'm sure it wasn't so funny to actually live it.

The writing was actually pretty good, but the author chose to throw every possible scenario into the mix.

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)
The first book was better. This one kept me hanging just enough to have to buy the next one.
