Bookclub selection for June.

Sweet story about four teenage friends who jot down their dreams and place them inside a blue bottle. The bottle was hidden in the rafters of one of the girls' homes. When the home is demolished 65 years later, the bottle is located and put into the hands of a local TV reporter, who is intrigued with the potential story. She spends the next several months locating and contacting all four women to find out if they were able to achieve their teenage goals. Through this process, the reporter is able to find out more about herself and the whole process turns her to God, who helps her discover her own dreams. The story is full of hope and inspires the reader to rethink his/her purpose in life.

Quotes I appreciated:
"It's been a very good life. And you can bet that when I go to meet my Maker, I won't be asking any foolish questions about why things didn't turn out the way I wanted them to be." (Adora)

"But sometimes your dreams are not as important as your calling." (Ellie)
