    "An eloquent tribute to her teacher"
    Overall

    Despite being deaf and blind, Helen Keller composed a beautiful narrative of her life from birth until her college years. Her descriptions of her experiences are vivid and animated. Her humble nature resonates as she gives credit to her teacher, Anne Sullivan, and all of the others who accompanied her on her amazing journey through life.

    Daniel Pecan Cambridge, 30, 35, 38 or 27, depending on how he feels that day, is a young man whose life is rich and full, provided he never leaves his Santa Monica apartment. After all, outside there are 8-inch-high curbs and there's always the horrible chance he might see a gas station attendant wearing a blue hat. So, except for the occasional trip to the Rite Aid to admire the California girl Zandy and to buy earplugs because they're on sale, he stays home a lot. And good thing, too.

    John says: "An Odd, Compelling Story"
    "A Steve Martin classic"
    Overall

    If you appreciate his humor in his tv or movie work, then this book is enjoyable. I like his portrayal of a quirky neurotic who is able to find his identity through his interactions with other "supposedly normal" people.

    In this heartfelt and absorbing novel, Valdes-Rodriguez opens up the lives of six upwardly mobile Latina friends in their late 20's. These women, who come from widely varied backgrounds, meet at Boston University and, after graduating, reunite every six months to share their stories. Facing the complications and pressures of everyday lives, the Social Club offers a chance to meet regularly, dish, dine, and help each other over the bumpy course of life and love.

    Jennifer says: "Lots of fun!!"
    "Character building at its best"
    Overall

    This wonderful book carefully introduces us to six Latina women who come from very different backgrounds and follow very diverse paths after graduating from Boston University. The way the author slowly interweaves the lives of these women is fascinating and her detailed portrayals of their characters makes them come alive. We can only hope for a sequel!

    "It appears that the help has been taking notes, and good ones. The help is very sharp-eyed indeed. The Nanny Diaries is diabolically funny...vastly entertaining...perfectly pitched social satire," raves The New York Times. Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts narrates this popular and critically acclaimed book - an enthusiastic skewering of high society written by two former nannies.

    Joanne says: "The Nanny Diaries"
    "A glimpse of the ultra rich"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. The portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. X, the extreme of superficial, makes one think about what is important in life. The over-the-top description of their life in comparison to that of the nanny and her charge is sad and yet thought provoking.
