Elizabeth (Alaska) Looks like another gem.

Chris I've been waiting MONTHS for this book from the library. For a while I was number 13! I've heard so many great things about it! Adding you to the list of reader friends who liked it as well! :-)

Julie Christine I loved this. So simply but beautifully written...

Shelley It left me feeling a little sad. I would be interested in hearing if you agreed with the main character's choices in life.

Mitchell It is magnificent. I read it in practically one sitting.
