If You Find Me (2013)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 5
Ok, any book that begins by printing G.M. Hopkin's poem, "Spring and Fall" already has me hooked. That was the poem that taught me I could read and interpret poetry for myself...And then, "Lady of Shalott!" What a treasure. Add Pooh and his friends, and we have a very literate narrator. Carey and...

I think this was an accurate portrayal of the lives that many people live in this world. Pain is rampant among many who suffer from depression and loss and sometimes this affects their ability to function and lead "normal" lives. The author does a great job of showing her readers a glimpse of pai...

This book was FANTASTIC--one of my new favorites. Marcelo's perspective gave me a completely new view of autism and what it is like to try to understand the rules of the "real world" in such a different mindset.

Canada (2012)

I picked up this book expecting a book about Canada and since one of my daughters is at university there I thought I should educate myself. I was completely misled by the title; there's not a lot about Canada in this novel. I thought the novel was amazing though. Part One is certainly the best...
Wintergirls (2009)

I loved this book and found the characters interesting enough to hook me into the story-line. I felt for Lia's struggles and the crossed out words didn't really bother me or put me off reading the book in any way. I am suffering from anorexia currently and I would like to warn readers that the bo...
