Verklaringen
agjuba: This is perhaps my all-time favorite book -- the writing is smart and clever, the characters are beautifully fleshed-out, and the premise is unusual.

ReluctantTechie: A well-written narrative about injustice in our judicial system that I was not aware of. It was also an inspiring example of personal commitment and activism.

heidialice, Capybara_99, carol.iam
Verklaringen
heidialice: A beautifully lyrical meditation on family, relationships and how they change over time and aging. A timeless, utterly believable, faltering voice, Lucy is naive and childlike in so many ways, yet incredibly perceptive when it comes to observing other people and their inner struggles.
