Read from February 15 to 16, 2010

Heavy-handed and goofy in equal measures, this book manages to rise above its flaws and tell a story that, while far-fetched, would have been balm to my troubled soul as a pre-teen. It's a message book whose time has, one fervently hopes, passed- though President Toby seemed far too similar to another four-letter-name president in both thought and deed.

I would have liked it better had I read it earlier, and though I'm glad I read it, it'll never be on my favorites shelf.

Wendy I had a feeling you would feel exactly this way about it! Don't you want to go on a bivouac now?

Melody You do know that I've only been camping twice in my whole life, right?

CLM That is more than me, even if you count one Girl Scout weekend in a cabin

Wendy It doesn't have to be CAMPING. One of those church-lady breakfasts would be very satisfactory.
