Julie and 86 other people liked Kim's review of This Book Will Save Your Life:
This Book Will Save Your Life by A.M. Homes
"You know, most days I sit around being angry. I’m in the car, I’m doing dishes, I’m waiting at the dentist (25 minutes after my scheduled appointment time.) and the thing is I’m not really conscious of it. It’s just there. It might present itself..." Read more of this review »
