These are two of the books on my list for the Highlights Foundation workshop. I read both of these intense books this weekend. My Book of Life By Angel by Martine Leavitt and Stop Pretending Nothing Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy by Sonya Sones are gripping, intense, and you just can’t put them down. Or at least I couldn’t. You can tell I tabbed some pages in the Sones book. I will be re-reading them over the next couple of weeks.
