She's just can't see that...I don't think it's necessarily to change him, but finally find something she wanted. We may not understand why, but Leah has most likely gotten used to the live she lives and wants at least her dad to be proud of her.
i read the poisonwood bible a while ago, but it was one of the best books ive ever was good because all the characters evoked different emotions, and the plot was good, but the book also had some meaning...

has anyone read Girl With a Pearl was excellent...the plot was good, and there were some of the best descriptions i've ever read...the writing was just beautiful

and now for a book i hated...The Lakehouse...i really didn't like it...the plot was preposterous, and it just got worse...and there were some inconsistencies...just dont read it

yup, thats all for now, but i still have all my summer reading to do...has anyone read The Emperor of Ocean Park? that looks good...

like ya said, i havent even heard of it! can you give us a summary becuase the title sounds interesting!

It's narrated by this girl, Morgan, who has this best friend, Jimmy, who she's been best friends with since like birth. He's a theater dancer and she's taking improv classes at Second City (in Chicago). Anyways... he gets killed by a drunk driver and most of the book is about Morgan's struggle to move on and live her life without her best friend. It's really sad but touching and I first read it about 5 years ago. LoL

Has anyone read Say Goodnight, Gracie by Julie Reece Deaver? It's one of my favorite books but no one else has like heard of it.
I read it about two years ago, but I never liked it. The story just wasn't anything I like to read.
But I did like one quote from

"Knowing what you have to lose, but risking the loss anyway. That's what life is all about."
