Three times funny--oops, I mean Three times lucky, by Sheila Turnage is funny, poignant, unexpected. Great people and quirky people--sometimes in the same person. Families with real problems and others with not-so-real but incredibly funny problems.
Don't miss Thursday's Feature Film: Moonrise Kingdom (PG13).
Wow. This is an awesome book. Not a happy read, mind you, but superb. I normally do not like legal thrillers (think John Grisham) but Defending Jacob is quite different. This is almost a necessary read for all citizens, showing the extreme toll taken on the often innocent family of the accused. The horrible and unacceptable results for the family of the accused is so plainly shown it hurts.
