    Julie Klam was 30, single, and working as a part-time clerk in an insurance company, wondering if she would ever meet the man she could spend the rest of her life with. And then it happened. She met the irresistible Otto, her first in a long line of Boston terriers, and fell instantly in love. You Had Me at Woof is the often hilarious and always sincere story of how one woman discovered life's most important lessons from her relationships with her canine companions.

    Overall

    The title is titilating, but I had to stop listening after the first two hours. I couldn't take the obsessiveness of the character, the fact the dog dies without any reference to its aging or demise. The author then launches into her marriage and having kids. It made it hard to follow or stay engaged.

    When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated, afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbor's horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?

    Overall

    You know that being a parent is the highest calling when you listen to Rupert Isaacson read about his own spiritual adventure with his wife and son. Raising an autistic unreachable son with mind blowing rages would lead most of us to the funny farm or divorce or both. Instead....this amazing couple agrees to go to the end of the civil world and into the unknown to regain some sanity to their lives and their relationship with their son. They have not given us a road we can all follow, but we are engaged totally in their son's gradual successes, setbacks, and their own courage.

    Within Cole Matthews lies anger, rage, and hate. Cole has been stealing and fighting for years. This time he caught Peter Driscal in the parking lot and smashed his head against the sidewalk. Now, Peter may have permanent brain damage - and Cole is in the biggest trouble of his life. He receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island. There, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear of Native American legend. But it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that may save his soul.

    Overall

    This book was introduced to me by a teen patient in my pediatrics office as mandatory reading in his high school English class and the concept of tribal justice dispatching a teen to an island to fend for himself was fascinating. But I could not put it down. It is a story of redemption at a gut wrenching level of self discovery.
