I was amazed to hear so much wisdom form such a young person! Steering away from the mainstream thinking. Content on who she is, not trying to "hang" her worth on hangers of grand possessions. Loved this book and I am encouraged to do some self evaluations.

An era gone by! Not everything old is bad, we can learn a lot by the sister's way of treating each other. A book full of love, laughter and a window on the world.
Look around and see what you can do to make someone happy in small acts of kindness and selflessness.

Got to tell somebody!

Everybody needs to read this book, everybody knows somebody that struggle with depression!
This book points out junk-values versus good-values and the benefit to differentiate between this. People eye to eye versus people in cyberspace and the influence on oneself if you choose junk.

The sentence I will take with me is: "People don't just need to be connected they also need to be of value; they want to know that they contribute to others lives!"

Joy within sorrow

I bought this Title because it was classified as historical. The story of four girls and a boy's survival of the second world war, I thought this is a topic that's not explored much and was interested.
There was No mention in the summary of lesbian relationships, the main topic of this book!
So with out being discrimanating I would like to mention that not all people like reading about this kind of relationships, so if this is your interest you in for a ball!
