One of my favorite books ever. I have recommended the book to many people and no one has ever been disappointed. This is the story of a seven-year-old girl, Rachel Kalama, who contracts Hansen's Disease (aka: Leprosy) and is quarantined to live at Kalaupapa, the leper settlement, on the Island of Molokai. This story follows Rachel over ~70 years of her life. It should be made into a mini series! Unforgettable!

House Rules by Jodi Picoult. Really good book. Interesting look into what it is like to live with Aspergers.
I often feel as if I have grown out of Jodi Picoult books. Whenever I think of her, I think of your typical romance novels full of cliches and unrealistic expectations. House Rules is the opposite of that. About a boy with aspergers who will go to all ends of the earth to follow the "rules" layed out by his mother.

Anne has enjoyed all of his books, but this is her favorite. . A Thousand Splendid Suns is a story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives are inextricable from the history playing out around them.
