Now THIS is a review. I'm currently listening to The Thirteenth Tale on tape in my car and wishing I needed to drive to Canada, as it kills me to pull into our alley and have to turn it off.

Interestingly, my enjoyment of the book stems out of virtually NO self-to-text connections...

Sounds compelling. I love books that share deep emotions I can relate to.


Wow. The book sounds great, and your personal story is so powerful. There's no hate quite so powerful and personal as those elementary school nemesis, and we ALL had one. Great post.


Wow! Those are the kind of books that I enjoy - ones that you continue to think about days and weeks later.


Is this family-friendly enough that we could listen to it on our next long car trip?
If not, we'll have to check it out for my dh. He commutes to books on tape and shares them with me.

Hmmm. I have to say it is more of a chick book--everything takes place in the mind of a girl from the time shes about 7 to 17.

Wow. I did not see the ending coming...some powerful memories. I can't help but think of Andrea's parents. That is where my mind always goes since I became a Mom.
The book does sound good though. I have not thought of books on tape, I should though, as much time as I spend in the car!

Little Miss Sunshine State

I'm adding this one to my list.

I can't add it to my list because my list is already too long!

It's interesting your story. I had something vaguely (well, very vaguely) happen to me. I had a little job at the local library and there was this guy who did the same as me but he was a lazy slacker. One day he didn't turn up and I sounded off about him to the boss, saying that he had forgotten to come or was in bed at home and then a call came later to say he had been killed in a car crash. Boy did I feel awful. Although really there was no reason to. He was a lazy slacker. But I couldn't go to the funeral either.

I read this and loved it. I have to get her other two books queued up at the library, stat.

Green Girl in Wisconsin

This sounds good. Real good. Am adding it to my "short list."

Manic Mommy

Sounds wonderful. I would kill for a long car ride and a good book.
