  2. Lessons from a Dead Girl was such a good book! I mean, I admit it was a bit depressing, but in a good way. Anyway, at GoodReads I have a review up under Kristin: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/451220.Lessons_from_a_Dead_Girl?rating=5#other_reviews
    I can't wait for Jumping Off Swings!

  3. It's not much of a review, and I have to admit that I didn't really like the book, but I did read it because of the scavenger hunt.
