Out of all the books I’ve read this year, there were two that affected me deeply. One of them is Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones, which I reviewed here.
The other, is a book that I am reading now, True Notebooks by Mark Salzman. I will be posting the review tomorrow to kick-off the new year but it’s a book that I had pre-conceived notions about, and realized very early on that I was incorrect in my thinking. It has changed my opinions on juvenile correctional facilities and has touched me in a way that is completely unexpected. I look forward to sharing it with you.
That said, have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve. I look forward to another great year of reading!

I just added Mr. Pip to my list. I’m looking forward to reading it.
I look forward to your review of True Notebooks. I’m trying to read The Freedom Writers Diary now and it is not inspiring to me.
Happy New Year Ti! I wasn’t sure that I would like Mr. Pip but I’ll have to think again!
