This is the second book by Carol Cassella and I loved it as much as her first (Oxygen). Her writing flows, tinged with those small incidentals that remind me how connected we all really are. I have a heart for medical stories, family stories, strong women who feel weak stories. She writes all that and more. Her characters will stay with me much longer than it took me to read the book!

Are these dogs for real? If so, I definitely want one. The story is a heartbreaker.

possibly my favorite book of all time! narrated by 5-year-old jack, this haunting story of what a mother will do to protect her child in even the most unbearable circumstances is heartbreaking, frightening, and in the end, utterly uplifting. i've practically made this required reading for all my friends!

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott (read it in college - need to reread for sure!)

“She had learned, in her life, that time lived inside you. You are time, you breathe time... Now she held inside her a cacophony of times and lately it drowned out the world...she picked her way along the path, making way for the boy inside to run along before her. It could be hard to choose the time outside over the time within.”

Because making it through your 20s isn't always an easy feat, here are some good reads to help you out along the way.

One if my absolute favorite books, I would recommend it to anyone

Blind Your Ponies: A story about a small town Montana basketball team in a dying town. A great story...couldn't put it down!

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

Another great story! Took me to a place I'll probably never see in person but through her words, I felt like I was right there with them.
