Thank you so much for sharing this book with me -- I have read "Deep End of the Ocean" by the same author and thought it was phenomenal, so I'm looking forward to reading this book as well. Thank you for sharing this book with me.

Oh, wow. This book was incredible, and I'm not sure I can adequately express the thoughts about it. You did have to suspend belief at times, for some of the plot developments were very extreme (I don't want to give any spoilers to future readers so I'll refrain from going into detail). The underlying theme of this novel was being wanted, and being loved in it's many forms. The way lovers love, the way friends love, the way parents and children love. Arly was not wanted or loved by her own family, and felt insecure around her best friend, and the events of this novel all begin unfolding as Arly develops a relationship through correspondence with a prison inmate, on a dare from her friend.

I was overwhelmed by Annie's love and concern for Arly, and for Arly's love of her daughter; horrified by the life Arly had led, and by her mothers absolute lack of maternal instincts; and disturbed by the relationship with Dillon LeGrande.

This book, and these characters, are going to linger in my mind for quite a while. Thank you, shellheap, for sharing this book with me. I hope to share it with other interested bookcrosser soon.

I'm going to share this book as a bookray. (International if there is interest). http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/3641928/1

If you would like to join this ring please PM me with your location & shipping preferences.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Here's my guidelines, paraphrased from other bookcrossers:

* If you wish to be added to the list, please PM me with your details.

* You will be sending the book to the person who appears after you in the list, so please PM them after the book arrives for their address, so there's mimimal delay after you've completed the book. If the next in line does not respond to several PMs over a period of a few weeeks, try posting an "In Search Of..." post in the forums, and contact me, and I'll reshuffle the shipping order.

* It's not a race, but please read and send the book on as speedily as you can, other people are dying to read it too! About two to three weeks is OK. (I understand when life gets in the way -- but please PM me if you've had the book in your possesion for longer than a month, so I don't worry that it's lost for good!)

* Please journal the book once you have received it (so we all know where it currently is) and again when you have read it (so we know what you thought of it -- part of what I love about Bookcrossing is hearing other's opionions of books I've loved).

* If you're the last person on the list please use your best judgement as to where the book goes next, RABCK, another ray or ring, or wild release...I'd just prefer that the book continues to travel rather than sit on a bookshelf collecting dust.

* Enjoy! It's supposed to be fun!

Well I have had this a ridiculously long time, so I think it's time for it to move on!
I really enjoyed the story and found it memorable, although the details are hazy I can still remember the characters and main plot although I read it back in 2006 when I originally received it. I really like Arly as a character, it was painful to how mistreated and how naive she was at the beginning of the book but it was wonderful to read as she grew stronger. I also liked the fact that she was not portrayed as a typical teenage mother - she is not careless because she is young but she makes mistakes because she truly believes they are the right thing to do and she doesn't have too many regrets. She really believes she loves Dillon but in the end she comes to realise that Annie's love for her and her love for Desiree are so much stronger than her original love for him.

I am going to offer this up as a Ray it forward, so it can get moving again and hopefully find someone else to enjoy it.


I offered this as a Ray it forward but got two responses so its now a mini-bookray.

I found Arly a difficult character to get on with at the beginning of the book and much preferred the sections narrated by Annie as these were more grounded in reality whereas Arly just seemed to be from a different era. I became more involved as the story progressed and enjoyed it more as it journeyed towards it final resolution.

Many thanks Twynnie, I have 300dogs' details and it will be in the post soon.
