    Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory that makes her the brightest kid in her school. Unfortunately, her teachers and doctors don’t believe she can even learn. Unable to talk, walk, or write, she longs to tell what she thinks and knows. Trapped inside her own mind, she finally discovers how to “speak.” And yet some may not be ready to hear her voice.

    Story

    Read this at the request of my daughter, and very glad I did. Wonderful narrative that evokes a spectrum of emotion and really makes you think. Four stars instead of five only because I thought it ended a little too abruptly - felt a bit unfinished.

  • Getting Naked: A Business Fable About Shedding the Three Fears That Sabotage Client Loyalty

    Another extraordinary business fable from the New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni. This new book in the popular Lencioni series shows what it takes to gain a real and lasting competitive edge.

    Story

    If there were such a thing as comfort food that's good for you, that would be the closest analogy to reading a Lencioni business fable. Goes down smooth and leaves you satisfied. Just like all his books, the narrative is engaging and packed with great lessons. I would rank this book right up there with "Death by Meeting" and "Silos" as my favorite Lencioni titles, although every one of his books is a quality work.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."

    Story

    If you grew up in the late 70s or early 80s and owned an Atari game console, or played Dungeons & Dragons, you will love this book. If you meet all of those criteria, this will be one of your favorite books of all time. Plot is not at all predictable, character development is robust, and action is nonstop. I couldn't put it down, and finished the book wanting more. There are lots of good novels, and a few truly great ones. Ready Player One is the latter.
