Nevermind. The first part of the book was bad, but the second... it was amazing. I want to marry the one character. I just finished it, and I cried so much... I'm really glad I read it. It was great. I highly recommend it.

We read The Outsiders last year, and this year we just finished reading The Book Thief for English.

The Book Thief was actually really good

Chris McCandless...Godric, reading Into the Wild was painfully sad. He reminds me of the friends of the ABC, the barricade boys, in Les Miserables.

Has anyone read A Farewell to Arms (Ernest Hemingway), The Awakening (Kate Chopin) or Their Eyes Were Watching God (Nora Zeale Hurston)? They're my choices for summer reading and I don't know which to choose. They all look pretty boring, and the Goodreads reviews don't really help.
