After some vacation time, the book club met two weeks ago to review Lisa Schroeder's Far from You. I know what you're thinking, "what happened to my status posts?" I couldn't help it. I've been doing a lot of personal writing with my book. It's been an up and down ride, where the ups had me writing nonstop for two months straight. But enough about me, I'm here to tell you about the book club's thoughts.
We didn't mind the book too much. We had a hard time believing the snow storm and the fact that no one found them in the 5 days. We also thought it was a little like Dessen's Along for the Ride with the girl going to stay with her dad and his new wife and new baby . . . only in verse. Speaking of the verse, it didn't hinder anything. For me, I found myself still being able to picture the scene in my head without the need for detailed paragraphs.
Next up, Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl. I'll try to keep you informed this time. I promise.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
