Always Too Much and Never Enough by Jasmin Singer
"I adore Jasmin Singer's podcast, Our Hen House, so I was very excited to read this. I could relate so much to her struggles with food. Definitely a good read if you are in recovery from binge eating disorder or compulsive overeating, and also a go..." Read more of this review »

Stay Down and Take It by Ben Marcus
"If he loves me, it is because that may open the portal for more cuddles and touches. That's all. He needs to be swaddled, and I just happen to be nearby. If I ever dare to walk past him without touching his hand or stopping to outright kiss him, h..." Read more of this review »
The Devil's Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea
"I read this book to learn more about the Mexican American border situation. Who are the "crossers" and whom must they deal with? I learned a lot. It presents all parts in a balanced and fair manner. I recommend the book very highly.

Sitti's Secrets by Naomi Shihab Nye
"I would love to give this book 4 or 5 stars. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and interesting to look at. The story is interesting in telling about how Palestinian life is so similar, but yet also so different from life in the U.S. I tea..." Read more of this review »

“Most adults claim not to believe in magic, but Klara knows better. Why else would anyone play at permanence--fall in love, have children, buy a house--in the face of all evidence there's no such thing?”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists

Marjory Stoneman Douglas
“Don’t think it is enough to attend meetings and sit there like a lump…. It is better to address envelopes than to attend foolish meetings. It is better to study than act too quickly; but it is best to be ready to act intelligently when the appropriate opportunity arises… Speak up. Learn to talk clearly and forcefully in public. Speak simply and not too long at a time, without over-emotion, always from sound preparation and knowledge. Be a nuisance where it counts, but don’t be a bore at any time… Do your part to inform and stimulate the public to join your action…. Be depressed, discouraged and disappointed at failure and the disheartening effects of ignorance, greed, corruption and bad politics — but never give up.”
Marjory Stoneman Douglas

Chloe  Benjamin
“She knows that stories have the power to change things: the past and the future, even the present.”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
“[Our world] seeks to encourage empathy, kindness, and compassion in children but seems suspicious of these same values in adults.”
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge (New Edition): The Ultimate Guide to Eating Healthfully and Living Compassionately

John Green
“It sucked having a dead person in your family and I knew what he meant about seeking solace in the old light...because you can't let the light catch up with the present. Otherwise you'd forget.”
John Green, Turtles All the Way Down
