Thought provoking! Definitely loved the concepts of this book, explaining the impact of holding onto energy versus letting it pass through us. It's just what I've been looking for to gain understanding about spiritual growth and centeredness. I would suggest to enjoy a bit at a time to make sure you're present in the writing, or you could easily zone out. The narrator's voice was a little dry, but he reads well.

Thirteen years ago, Vivi LeBrun was sketching a rooster and eating Oreos when she first met - and fell for - her friend's brother, David St. James. Since then, her love for David has only intensified thanks to years of friendship with his family, who rescued her from a lonely, tumultuous childhood. As she travels to Block Island to vacation with the St. James siblings, Vivi daydreams about reuniting with David, hoping he'll finally see her as his soul mate.

I liked the characters, Vivi reminded me of myself. Art, teaching, spunky, different hair, positive attitude. It was well read by the narrator. The plot line was successful. I could somewhat guess what would happen at the end, but the whole story unfolded well. I soon found myself wanting to know more about what would happen next! It wasn't drawn out, what a great length. The ending is believable!

Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn't always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn't gotten out of bed in months. Not as heavy as her brother, Skunk, who has more meanness in him than fat, which is saying something. But she's large enough to be the object of ridicule wherever she is: at the grocery store, walking down the street, at school. Sugar's life is dictated by taking care of Mama in their run-down home - cooking, shopping, and, well, eating.

The story was empowering at the end; a reminder that we can change how we see ourselves, and what path we take in life.

Slightly unbelievable about her friendship with Evan, but that's the charm and foundation of the book.

The plot twist was a surprise.

Overall, was a good read and could be a great support to adolescents in the same situation of bullying and obesity. Sugar learns to take control of her life, and make conscious decisions to get healthy. Mind, body and spirit.

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

I was interested from the beginning. It's a different story line. The characters are believable, and the dialogue charming. I found myself saying a few of the phrases the main character rose uses. I like the concept of the plot, and the narrator is awesome! I love her tone, and inflection when reading. She uses variations in the characters voices successfully. I would listen to this again. I honestly wasn't sure about her neighbor being an antagonist or protagonist!

Lucy Silchester has received an appointment card. Actually, she's been invited along a few times to this appointment, but she keeps brushing the gold-embossed envelope under the shag pile carpet. She's taken her eye off the ball and has busied herself with work (a job she doesn't love), helping out friends, fixing her car, feeding her cat, seeing her family, and devoting her time to their life dramas. But Lucy is about to find out that this is one appointment that she can't miss.

This story was hilarious, and the main character Lucy reminded me a little of myself. What a different concept for a story line as well. It gets you to think. I love the chemistry of the characters in the book,and the wit is hilarious. The only qualm was on occasion it was difficult to tell who was speaking what dialogue since the narrator didn't distinguish enough the characters voices. But I loved the voice, tone and inflection she had while reading. I would listen to more books she narrated. Very glad to have listened listened to this book!
