Can I split the difference of what I rated it on Amazon to award this a 3.5 slice-o-pie? Extra whipped cream, then. i liked the readability, the likable characters, especially Chloe, the four year old! Kept thinking something bad was going to happen but it was only the layering of everyday life stresses with the need to appreciate the good; reminding the reader that every day is precious. Interesting story within a story and the -- spoiler!! The fact that some characters are mentioned only through others... The end was almost a sucker-punch, brutal but not quite. Could almost be accused of a bit of preachiness but really admirably done, I suppose. I didn't mind even as I recognized it. So. Eat more PopTarts, less meat. No one should accuse this book of being too long.

Care And I am rather shocked that this didn't make an appearance on the book blogger circuit that I seem to be on the fringes of. Especially, since the author is one of the first book bloggers to influence me to blog about books...

Care ((Wouldn't it be really cool if all the comments in a Kindle read would show up as updates? As well as notes... wow. Just dreaming...))

ON that note, I meant to give an update that this book mentions Oh Antonia! A book I recently read. LOVE those book-connections.
