Caroline’s story heads down two paths when her beloved grandmother is near death.  Caroline’s family is visiting her grandmother in the hospital to say their goodbyes.  Caroline’s best friend, Simone, encourages Caroline to get out for… Read more »

ARC August: Week 3 Update

ARC August: Week 3 Update

I have a very short attention span, so as I sat down to write this post, I could not even remember which books I’d planned to read for Week 3 of Read Sleep Repeat’s ARC August challenge.  And then I had the wonderful realization that I read all three!  (Granted, I’d started one of them the previous week.)  To pat myself on the back a little more, I completed a fourth book today, and I’m halfway through number five!  Here’s… Read more »

Review: The Program by Suzanne Young

Review: The Program by Suzanne Young

Suzanne Young tackles the topic of teenage suicide in an interesting way.  What if there was a pill that could wipe out the depressing thoughts and memories that lead to suicide?  Would parents fearful of losing their children to suicide be willing to have the children’s memories wiped clean?  In order to buy into The Program, I had to set aside some beliefs and/or known facts about depression and suicide.  For instance: People who are prone to depression may have… Read more »
