We don’t live in two different states. We just pay taxes in two different states…so at tax time we deal with Pennsylvania, Delaware and the Feds! I think that’s what I meant to say. If we move this year it could be three different states…yikes! We do live in the “tri state area.” And if we wanted to we could literally drive from PA to Delaware to Maryland probably in an hour! How ’bout that you Californians? Heeheehee!
But after googling this I just learned that there are lots of tri state areas! Who knew?
Obvi I was clueless!
I am exiting discreetly out of my geography lesson. If my friend Bill ( retired 5th grade teacher with mad map skills ) reads this he will straighten up my mixed up thoughts about this.
Thank you, Bill!
Read this…good but way too fluffy after Sweetbitter and Shelter…it’s all Pandora charms and forgetfulness and loons on a lake. Ice cream, too!
I probably needed some kind of intervention book before reading this sweet Lake Michigan novel. Fudge and blueberries and rhubarb coffee cake vs wine and uni and drinking at 3:30 AM…what was I thinking?
Den has wrestled Sweetbitter from me and is anxious to start…I guess I drew him into the dark side of restaurants! Can I just say that he just finished Flight Of Dreams? We actually talk books sometimes but it’s more me asking him what page he’s on and Den yelling at me to not say anything about the book.
I am off to get some stuff done! After I watch Teen Mom 2.0…I am bizarrely drawn to this series.
“Retellings of beloved classics are tricky, but here, Dickens’ overall plot and major characters translate effortlessly into this intriguingly imagined setting. Lucie and Ethan are more complex than their rather insipid Victorian prototypes, and Carwyn retains all the bad-boy fascination of his charismatic counterpart.”
“A strong, well-written female protagonist sets this coming-of-age novel apart.”―Kirkus Reviews
Have a great day!
