Here is a little review on what I have read so far:
The Distant Land of My Father by Bo Caldwell. Great book about a girl growing up in Shanghai, China and her relationship with her father. I recommend it.
Girl Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen. Story of a girl admitted to a mental institution. Very interesting - definitely makes you think. Maybe we are all crazy?
The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club: True Tales from a Magnificent and Clumsy Life by Lori Notaro. Cute short stories. Maybe a little too crude for me.
Precious by Sapphire. A winner, but hard to read. Deals with the mental/physical/sexual abuse a young girl endures from her parents. I watched the movie over the weekend - the book is better.
I just started a new book - Wanderlust: A History of Walking by Rebecca Solnit. I absolutely love it so far. I can't wait to keep reading!
