I read Jacob I Have Loved well over twenty years ago and still remember it as one of my teenage favorites. So happy to know it's still being read and discussed!

Great books to read in the summer. Can I just say that I am so jealous of everyone who lives overseas, they are all free from college/school. I on the otherhand still have some tests and school till July! OH my! Yep, and that's not all, no summer weather what so ever.
