Journal Entry 1 by wingJudySlump612wing from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on Saturday, October 10, 2015
My favorite amongst Lorna Landvik's books are those set in our mutual neighborhood of south Minneapolis. But even I can acknowledge that there is life outside this splendid setting. And I always enjoy her quirky, unpredictable characters. In fact, I got so interested in the daughter, Franny, I would have liked to have had a sequel, or at least an epilogue, telling us more about what she does next. That's just like real life isn't it? I like being left with some unanswered questions!

But that's just one person's opinion. Future readers, what do YOU think of this book?

I'm excited about this book from my new friend Judy. Sharing it with me was a very thoughtful way to gift me with a taste of the Minneapolis area in literary form! My Mom and I are both interested in reading this one, though I'm not sure who will get to it first. Either way, I will journal it for each of us before it continues its journey. We visit a lake in St. Joseph Michigan a few times a year, as it is our favorite destination for a Mother/Daughter daytrip excursion for a change of scenery, so I'm contemplating a possible lakeside release in this book's future, though steps would be taken to protect it from the elements of water and sand, of course.

My Mom and I both read this one. I found it particularly interesting because I had just visited the local where the book is set. She, however, thought it was especially sad, as the young female character reminded her a little too much of a beloved niece who is going through some rough things. Thank you for the interesting reading experience! I'm sending it to continue its journey via Firefly's take a book/leave a book shelf. Enjoy!
