    'There's an empty notebook lying on the table in the moonlight. It's been there for an age. I keep on saying that I'll write a journal. So I'll start right here, right now. I open the book and write the very first words: My name is Mina and I love the night. Then what shall I write? I can't just write that this happened then this happened then this happened to boring infinitum. I'll let my journal grow just like the mind does, just like a tree or a beast does, just like life does. Why should a book tell a tale in a dull straight line?'

    Story
    Would you listen to My Name Is Mina again? Why?

    Yes!
    Sanderson's voice is superb as MINA. When I picked up a hardcopy of the the book I found I couldn't read it without hearing her voice in my head. Her voice made funny lines funnier and touching lines more touching...


    What other book might you compare My Name Is Mina to and why?

    Skellig - same author and characters
    Okay for Now - Gary D. Schmidt - which is also about a boy struggling to find out who he is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The poem about school!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both - laugh and cry...and cry laughing...


    Any additional comments?

    Too many wonderful bits to count.
    She's a delightful character...delightfully portrayed. I didn't want the story to end.
