Written by my firstmom sister, Dawn Malloy Young, “Not Fade Away" is her true life story with Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones in Britain's early 60's and the best and worst of that cultural era. This ‘must read' takes readers on a journey into the early beginnings of the Stones and also explains how forced adoption was all too common in that era. The author is a survivor who overcame abuse and losses to experience eventual love and joy.

GOOD GIRLS DON'T is the debut literary effort of entertainment publicist Patti Hawn, who is the sister of the legendary film actress, Goldie Hawn. Her book is a deeply personal first-hand account of what it was like to be trapped in an unwanted pregnancy at the close of an era where home economics took precedence over sex education. This is where the typical adoption story begins....and ends. www.goodgirlsdont....

.Oh so true! It's so sad to finish a book and be experiencing all the emotion inside your head while everyone else thinks you're nuts... :/ Ah the curse of being a book worm
"lost in a book"....so true! ;)...Actually if it is a really good book, I feel I've lost a family/my life.
I always do this when i read a book. Books bring me into my own world where i only worry about what is going to happen in a book, not what is happening in real life
Book quote "That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize that everyone is just carrying on with their lives as though you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback". #BookQuote
when you finish a good book...so true! @Karen Justi @Courtney Nichols @Jennifer Schwalm @Katie Coyer !!!
So true. My life seems wrong when I finish a book. Like something amazing has just happened and life will never be the same...but it is.
so true. and still i read on...always willing to chase the emotional trauma
You know you're a bookworm when...
So true! I'm such a book nerd.

The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade by Ann Fessler I was inspired to read this one after someone in my family was "sent away" during this time period. Funny how times have changed for young women who get pregnant. Terrifying portrayal of adults forcing their will on young women at their most vulnerable. The stories will really stick with you. Easy read...done almost in short story form.
An important book to read when considering your argument for or against Roe v. Wade

Home is the place where our life stories begin. It is where we are understood, embraced and accepted. It is a sanctuary of safety and security, a place to which we can always return. Down in the dank basement amid my moldy, hoarded food and worm-eaten books sat another precious possession: the idea that my real home, the place where my story had begun was out somewhere, and one day I was going to find it.

THE SAME SMILE - "A wonderfully human story of a 60's relinquishment and a family reunited, told in the blended voices of mother, Susan Mello Souza, and daughter, Joanne Medeiros. Instead of a tragic account of the loss of a child to adoption, compounded by the death of a subsequent child to leukemia, this book is a triumph of strength..." Nancy Ashe www.thesamesmile.com
My aunt's memoir.... amazing woman. Fabulous book.
The entire collection is worth reading just for the laughs they provide.

Two for the Dough (A Stephanie Plum Mystery) by Janet Evanovich http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007C4PBUG/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_q0Tkvb1M5C6KR
I love all of the Janet Evanovich - Stephanie Plum Books. They are so insane you find yourself laughing out loud in a room all by youself.
* "Two for the Dough" by Janet Evanovich - disappointing after the first one.. I was expecting more and got the feeling it was practically the same scenario all along..
When you need a good belly laugh read or listen to any of Janet E. books. Janet Evanovich is another great author.
