Read Two YA's

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Colin Singleton, brilliant prodigy, has been dumped by nineteen different
Katherine's. To mend his broken heart, Colin and best friend Hassan hit the
road. They land in Gutshot, TN. LOVED IT!

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott

I am not even sure what to say. This was a very powerful and very difficult book to read. In a way, it took my breath away.

The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard

Rex, his brother Patrick, and their father Sheriff Shellenberger go out in the middle of the night during a blizzard to search their ranch for newborn calves so they won't freeze to death when they come across the body of a murdered teenage girl. The Sheriff, town doctor, and town judge, all close friends and their children, Rex, Mitch, and Abby all simultaneously hide and seek bits of truth about the unidentified murder victim.

This is the first Pickard book I have read and I really enjoyed it. It was a good mystery and I also enjoyed the small town Midwestern characters.
