The Help, Kathryn Stockett,

The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I've read this book way before it became a wonderful movie, so I was excited to finally watch it in cinema when it was in theaters. Love the book as well as the movie.

An empowering  novel set in Jackson, MS.  Yes it is about racism and there is definitely some stereotyping - HOWEVER the characters are accessible and the message is powerful.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett. This book is similar to To Kill a Mockingbird in its theme, but vastly different in plot. I loved the spunk of the characters and the way the story was told.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: I read this in conjunction with The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis while taking a "God, Suffering, & Evil" in college. This book reminds me that we must cherish those that are important to us. We must ask them all of the questions that we can while they are still in our lives. It's about learning life’s greatest lesson through the death of a friend. It's about feeling a great passion for life. We must be ready for our time when we meet God.

Tuesdays With Morrie - Mitch Albom. This book has some great quotes and life lessons

Orphan Train: Author Interview with Christina Baker Kline

Orphan Train: A Novel: Christina Baker Kline: A Pinner says.never knew about the orphan trains until reading this book, although very sad, I loved this.

I read this book shortly after the passing of my brother William and I must say it brought a different perspective and an odd sense of comfort that his reality while very different then mine now is still one filled with love, friendship and above all else the greatest understanding of life as we each call it.  Def. not your average novel but I highly recommend this book to anyone that has lost a friend, love or family.

the five people you meet in heaven By: Mitch Albom --This book really makes you think.

A Child Called It: I have no idea HOW I made it through this book. It was incredibly rough and could only read it in small doses. This was required reading for my minor in Child & Family Studies and my Abuse Against Women and Children course. IDK if I could've read it of my own free will.

A Child Called It | Dave Pelzer New paperback Book pb

This book never fails to make me cry, make me sick to my stomach and want to kill this poor child's mother. But I think everyone should read it, just to know how horrible child abuse is and that these things really happen to innocent children.
