The Great Gatsby. I had a friend that recommended reading this.

Books ;) ~Divergent~ ~Insurgent~ ~Allegiant~ I haven't read A LOT of these jtlyk

The Great Gatsby, the only book I remember truly enjoying from English class in high school.

Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)

"The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald (recommended by Bill Beekman, MSU's Secretary of the Board of Trustees and Executive to the President at MSU)

Good book, but terrifying to read as a mother!!!

This is one book for which the movie was a very good representation of the spirit of the story. Love the whole redemption part of T. Ray Owens and the prayer group Our Lady of Chains was inspiring.

Really loved the story of this girl. She had courage, sensibility, love. And she looked at the world with the eyes of the heart.
