I loved the graphics. But I especially enjoyed reading about Hélenè. I was sad when I finished this one and would have liked more about Hélenè.
I heard about Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? from my coworkers. Since I work in the aging field any book about growing older is always talked about. I could really relate to Roz. I too am an only child and have old fogey parents. I want to give this book to everyone who doesn't believe their parents will get old or need help. Roz doesn't pull any punches. She discussed cost of her parent's care, the guilt she feels about seeing them, not seeing them, and what it's like to watch someone die. Brutally honest but so beautiful. Not an uplifting book but one that will stick with me.
I'm so glad I picked up Drama. Callie is a 7th grader and she loves being involved with her school's drama department. Callie excels at making sets. Drama is the story of Callie putting on a play and the drama that surrounds her. It reminded me of 7th grade when she liked him but he liked someone else and that gross boy liked her. It was cute and fun. I would love to hear more about Callie in the future.
