    For author Kenneth H. Thompson, childhood was anything but idyllic. In his memoir, he chronicles his life story and the lessons he learned in the process. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he grew up with two brothers and two sisters, but he suffered abuse at the hands of his step-father.

The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I absolutely loved this book. It is an adult version of Harry Potter or the Chronicles of Narnia.

... but it's important to remember that the movie version is just an interpretation of the book. It's like when two different artists sing 'Jingle Bells'. Jingle Bells is a very old song with definite lyrics, but the artists give it whatever variations they want.

The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.

    This was a wonderful book. I love this poem from it...

    "If we come to sleep, we are His drowsy ones If we come to wake, we are in His hands If we come to weeping, we are His cloud full of raindrops If we come to laughing, we are His lightning in that moment If we come to anger and battle, it is the reflection of his wrath If we come to peace and pardon, it is the reflection of His love Who we are in this complicated world we are like "A'' letter, what does it have?, nothing" Rumi nothing.
