Friday, May 05, 2006STILL IN BRAZIL
My it's been forever since I've written -- I apologize!
I have read two more summer reading books: My Thirteenth Winter and Flip-Flop Girl. I would bookend them, but I fear I don't have enough time online today to do so. I am currently in Ijui but leave for Cruz Alta in about 1.5 hours.
Nevertheless -- My Thirteen Winter is about a girl who discovers she has a learning disorder related to numbers -- even though she excels at a variety of subjects at school. It's a great autobiography, combining memories with current thought.
Flip-Flop Girl is a simpler story about a girl who moves to a new town after her father dies and has to adjust to a new school and living at her grandmother's house -- not an easy transition. She errs along the way, but does manage to make friends and eventually come to grips. A nice story.
That's all from Brazil at the moment. Remember to visit the library and READ!
