Another Book Review, And Hey, I'm Finally Selling My Old House
The weird thing is, I think it took me longer to read this 350-page YA novel than it did this 650-page grown-up-sized-typeface behemoth. I liked both books, in completely different ways, but I will say, I found it more intuitive to follow the interpersonal politics of a family saga with a cast of thousands, sprawling across two continents and a dozen cultures, than I found it to follow them in a book about a 13-year-old girl. That probably means L. Jagi Lamplighter got the viewpoint character's developmental stage right in The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin.
In unrelated news, we've just finished negotiating with buyers for our house in New Jersey. We may actually be in a new place of our own in Maryland before winter's end.
