really liked it
bookshelves: audio
Read from April 27 to May 08, 2012

Had no clue what I was getting into...grabbed a couple books on CD for sev. drives to Columbus & back this wk. Didn't even read the back covers. (Izzy & Lenore was the other one)
Strange, not my typical pick, but it drew me in quickly...
love Jack's voice on the audio version, & how it is written just how a 5 yr. old might think & talk.
The Mom's love for her child & the ways she protects him from their reality has gotten me teary-eyed a couple times...I also love all their activities, the imagination & creativity of it. I wonder if I could keep so sane, disciplined, & positive.
Might have to get to kids' practices, etc. a little early tonite so I have more time to sit & listen!

Laura Funny, I started this one on audio last year and couldn't get into it. Maybe I should try again.
