Dumplin'

Dumplin'Dumplin' by Julie Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Dumplin'. She refers to herself as a fat girl...that is just who she is, why can't people accept that she feels comfortable in her body? She registers for Miss Teen Bluebonnet, a beauty pageant run in part by her mother, a past pageant winner. What starts as a statement becomes a revolution of "fat girls" daring to compete. Then there is Bo....

Slice of Life--Lessons from a Dying Man

Lessons From a Dying Man

Shrouded in my own pain,
Weighed down by disappointment
Lost in would've, could’ve, should’ve
Questioning life, work, God
Unable to stop the tears flowing
At my desk, on my couch, in the car
I find myself searching

I find answers from a dying man
“What the hell is wrong with you!”
“You cannot carry everyone else!”
“Water off a ducks back”
Remember that

My good friend loves this man
This man loves her
Their love and warmth comforts me
You can feel it in the air, in every movement
I find God again

I am pulled from my pit of depression
By this hand, reaching out and
Sharing a rare bottle of wine
One last toast, one last kiss
Just remember
Like water off a ducks back

The Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman

Product DetailsVery funny.  What do you do when your father is the leading mobster in the city?  What if you don't want anything to do with the family bushiness?  What do you do when people meet you, are afraid as soon as they see you?  Can life ever be normal?  THEN meet a girl you really like and find out she is the daughter of the FBI agent bugging your house desperately trying to arrest you dad. I loved this book.

Confessions: The Private School Murders by James Patterson

Product DetailsTandy finds herself in the middle of another murder mystery.  First of all her older brother is in jail for murdering his pregnant girlfriend.  He can't remember anything about the night of her death.  Then we have the mystery of who is killing the private school girls.  As the bodies pile up, Tandy becomes more involved in both murders.  She is still searching for the love of her life....if he is real that is.
