“Your first family is your blood family and you always be true to that. That means something. But there’s another family and that’s the kind you go out and find. Maybe even by accident sometimes. And they’re as much blood as your first family. Maybe more so, because they don’t have to look out for you and they don’t have to love you. They choose to.” -Dennis Lehane, The Given Day

New WKAR Book Review: The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick
The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick. “Socially-awkward 40-year-old Bartholomew has lived with his mother all his life and has never held a job. When she succumbs to cancer, he channels her favorite actor, Richard Gere, to make her happy during her last days. Funny and sad, with moving, unsentimental prose and a quick, satisfying pace. Highly recommended.” --Michael Colford, Boston Public Library, Boston, MA
12. The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick. A quirky novel about loss, friendship, Catholicism and Richard Gere (by the same author as Silver Linings Playbook).

Pinner writes: "Genre-bender about a small-time hood w/ Tourette's Syndrome who is forced into the role of detective when his boss gets fatally stabbed.

14. A book worth reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth. The sequel, Insurgent is out this month. This is the best of contemporary YA dystopian literature ...you know, if you're into that kind of thing. *It's true I've absolutely both books.
Book Review of Divergent, by Veronica Roth #divergent #veronicaroth #insurgent #hungergames #thehungergames #tris #four #tobias #novel #fiction #books #reading #youngadult
Divergent, by Veronica Roth. If you need to get a dystopian fix, young adult series seem to be the thing now. This is the first of a trilogy, and certainly worth reading. If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy this series as well. About a 16 year old girl who lives in Chigaco - where the city is divided into 5 factions. When you are 16, you choose your faction, a choice that will define who and what you are for good. I really enjoyed this first book - interesting concept.

Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy, #2) #Divergent #VeronicaRoth #Dystopian
Summer reading: For legions of The Hunger Games fans salivating for their next dystopian survival rations, the Divergent series offers toothsome fare. Insurgent, the sequel to the first book, plunges readers deeper into Tris Prior’s brutal world, where the only certainty has been her love for Tobias, a fellow Dauntless Faction member. Wasn't my favorite book, but it was still pretty awesome. The first book was better
