Read in August, 2011

Alright, so these are definitely in the beach-read category (or transfusion room category, if that's where you're needing to pass time ...) But for beach reads, I really think Hannah does a good job with developing characters and relationships. I liked this book a lot--I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. I liked the mother-daughter relationship, and the way that the daughter had to sort of re-visit what went on in her childhood in order to come to terms with that past. I think we're all like that. Things look very different to young kids than to adults. And often part of the healing process comes from re-meeting your parents as peers.
