                  How was it?

                  Try reading Eleanor and Park if you haven't.

                    I don't remember what it was about the book, but something was off. I hadn't enjoyed it as much as I had hoped to.
                    I've read Eleanor and Park and enjoyed it.

                        I just finished reading Tell Me Three Things. And I enjoyed it; it wasn't as wonderful as Eleanor and Park....but it was still a good book. There was just one particular issue in the book that I felt was handled more tastefully in Eleanor and Park.

                        Now, I'm reading Girl Last Seen...which is a mystery book. I haven't even completed the first chapter yet, but so far it's got me hooked. It's about a girl who was kidnapped when she was a child and was fortunate enough to have survived. She spends a considerable amount of time researching kidnapping and missing persons cases...and one day...she learns of the disappearance of a little girl named Olivia Shaw....who looks very much like the narrator did when she was kidnapped years ago. She feels that Olivia's case might have some connections to her own kidnapping and that is what she explores.

                        Next on the list is, The Sun is a Star. The girl, Natasha, is very objective...believes in facts and science and logical explanations. The guy, Daniel, believes in destiny...and fate...and meant to be. They meet...and these two concepts are explored. Since I've always wondered how much of a role fate plays in our lives....I just had to pick this one up. I hope that it's a good one.

                            The Gebusi. It is an interesting ethnography that sheds light on an isolated ethnic group in Papua New Guinea and how their culture changes from 80s, 90s, and present day.

                                If you enjoyed Eleanor and Park as I did.....I would recommend The Sun is Also a Star. It's a long book, but it moves at a fast pace and I finished it one day. I usually check out books from the library as I had done for Eleanor and Park....but I'm glad that I purchased The Sun is Also a Star because now it's part of my collection. It has that similar kind of sweetness and sincerity to it that Eleanor and Park did...and it hooks you from the first page.

                                As for The Rachel Project, I read only the first few pages...and I put it away. Could not get into it. Maybe it's the style of writing or perhaps the tone. I'll give it another shot though.
