Just finished this yesterday. I was sick OK? It's OK to lay low once in a while. Tia has been raving about it, and to be honest, juvenile fiction is my favorite genre. When i read, I'm usually looking for an escape. This book was perfect for that. Interesting concept, all new scenery, and characters I didn't mind relating too. To explain what I mean, I loved Middlemarch by George Elliot, because I loved Dorothy. I couldn't read her book Brother Jacob however, because the main character disgusted me. Same thing with Kite Runner. With juvenile fiction, usually you don't have to worry too much about that. One could argue, that characters aren't as deeply drawn in these books I suppose, because as juveniles they are not fully developed human beings. I'm OK with that. For an escape, I'm good with that. I heard this book is a movie out right now? Let me know if you've seen it.
I am a fitness instructor, AFAA certified personal trainer, and a mom of three. Most of the time I'm vegan, with some crazy "free" meals a couple times a week. I have a love/hate relationship with my yard depending on how much work it needs! I grew up in San Diego, and love the ocean. I scuba, but sometimes have panic attacks snorkeling. Given the choice between the superpowers of invisibility and flight, I'd pick flight in a heartbeat. I love my husband, and his patience with my crazy habit of getting into something that's well over my head.
