Read:

The Rooster Bar

Grisham, John
I read this in two sittings, no problem. Nothing new, just a nicely written lawyer (well, maybe not so much lawyer...) story. Very enjoyable, and I had fun looking up places in Senegal, too.

Read:

Theodore Boone Kid Lawyer

Grisham, John
Teen Theo's parents are lawyers and his goal is to be a lawyer, too. Or a judge. A rather serious young man, still he gets along well with his peers. I feel a sequel, as nothing is resolved in this episode.

Quote:

Humorous Quote #1:
"Can you cough again for us, Teddy?" his mother asked. (pg. 93)

Humorous Quote #2:
"I'd rather not go to jail," Theo said. (pg. 185)
"I really don't want to go to jail," Theo said. (pg. 186)

Read:

Teaching Hope

Gruwell, Erin
Stories from the Freedom Writer teachers, about their experiences in teaching. Some really poignant stories. I kind of weeped up at the story of Pablo and Frankie (#147).

The Million Dollar Putt

Gutman, Dan
Ed, a blind teen, takes up golf. Pretty good story.

Quote:

I sure wouldn't want to have asthma. I think I would worry all the time about when my next attack would come. At least blindness is something you can count on every day.

Read:

Found

Haddix, Margaret Peterson
Book 1 of the The Missing series. An adopted teen gets a disturbing letter. And then another. And then there was that mysterious airliner with all the babies thirteen years before. Pretty good, feels like I've read it before, though.
