A very quick children's chapter book-- the one got me good with the tears. It's a great story of believing in yourself and believing in those who you love. I loved it so much.

I love Ann Patchett and I loved State of Wonder.

This didn't top Bel Canto for me (which is the most AMAZING), but it was it's own highly readable, very thoughtful story. An epic journey through the Amazon that puts you right in the thick of the most

Anna liked a quote
Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl
“I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile because it's impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren't feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I've also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you but his eyes stay the same. It's sure to be a phony.”
Roald Dahl

“My soul has learned what it came to learn, and all the other things are just things. We can't have everything we want. Sometimes, we simply have to believe.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Deb Caletti
“summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. you can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.”
Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart

Augusten Burroughs
“Stars should not be seen alone. That's why there are so many. Two people should stand together and look at them. One person alone will surely miss the good ones.”
Augusten Burroughs, Dry

Harper Lee
“Summer was on the way; Jem and I awaited it with impatience. Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the tree house; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape; but most of all, summer was Dill.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

L.M. Montgomery
“That is one good thing about this world...there are always sure to be more springs.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
