I love this book.

This is one of those little gems someone recommends to you off the cuff where it ends up changing your life. Yeah. I was on a pretty drama-riddled holiday and this book... this book made the holiday good. This book took me to a different place, with a different beat. I felt a subtle shift in me. The shift, in this case, was to look through newly opened eyes.

I can't say that I was suddenly cool or magically got some hipness. I'm still nerdly and annoying... but I am aware of being the other and I'm aware of the other nearby. I listen to the stories people are telling (which isn't hard working in a library), but hear the music within them.

I can't wait to read the next book. This book is *my* Twilight.
