Your post title brought tears to my eyes this morning. Oh how I wish the world were a wish granting factory. We had a terrible tragedy in our family and community this past weekend and tomorrow morning we will have to say goodbye to a beloved beautiful boy. It's times like these that you realize the harsh reality that the world just doesn't grant wishes even if everyone is wishing the same thing.

I look forward to your audio book reviews, and have just added Mr. Green's book to my listening list. It looks like I will be having a long commute after Labor Day, and audio books make the commute a pleasure instead of something to be endured.


John Green is one of my daughter's favorite authors. If you like this book, you'll probably like his others too like "Paper Towns" or "Looking for Alaska". And we've loved Maira Kalman forever. Her children's books are hilarious and she also illustrated another great YA book called "Why We Broke Up". And while we're talking about books, have you read "Tell the Wolves I'm Home"? So good!

I'm laughing at Annie (comment above) well, not "at" but just giggling because WOLVES came on the radar via your sister, right?......I love that sometimes....this is a very small World. Maira's art inspires me on a daily basis. I'm happy that you have these in your library......
