How in the world is this a bestseller? Cardboard characters, cardboard scenes. 1/2 star.

Some corny bits, but I was surprised by how much I liked this one. The voice was honest throughout and I felt drawn to know more about Maggie. There was no embellishment and none of the "poor me!" stuff we find in some memoirs. 4 stars.

Liked it, but still preferred Antifragile. Wasn't interested in following the author's every single idea to its conclusion.

Disappointing. I like her other books, but it felt like the author lost her tight hold on the plot and it unraveled.

“Children learn from anything and everything they see. They learn wherever they are, not just in special learning places.”
john holt, Learning All The Time

Harper Lee
“When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Francis A. Schaeffer
“Christian art is the expression of the whole life of the whole person as a Christian. What a Christian portrays in his art is the totality of life. Art is not to be solely a vehicle for some sort of self-conscious evangelism.”
Francis A. Schaeffer, Art & the Bible

Francis A. Schaeffer
“Christians . . . ought not to be threatened by fantasy and imagination. Great painting is not "photographic": think of the Old Testament art commanded by God. There were blue pomegranates on the robes of the priest who went into the Holy of Holies. In nature there are no blue pomegranates. Christian artists do not need to be threatened by fantasy and imagination, for they have a basis for knowing the difference between them and the real world "out there." The Christian is the really free person--he is free to have imagination. This too is our heritage. The Christian is the one whose imagination should fly beyond the stars.”
Francis A. Schaeffer, Art & the Bible

Francis A. Schaeffer
“The ancients were afraid that if they went to the end of the earth they would fall off and be consumed by dragons. But once we understand that Christianity is true to what is there, true to the ultimate environment - the infinite, personal God who is really there - then our minds are freed. We can pursue any question and can be sure that we will not fall off the end of the earth.”
Francis Schaeffer, Art & the Bible
