I absolutely adored this book! And the radio show was terrific too!

Can I ask...what is up with all the covers featuring kids floating in the air? This one...Kelly Corrigan's "The Middle Place," Rebecca Well's new book, "The Crowning Glory of Cally Lilly Ponder," -- I know there are others, just can't think of them off the top of my head.
Just curious...


This book looks so dauntingly long to me, but it sounds like there isn't anyone who isn't strongly affected by it. Thanks for the great review!


I really enjoyed this book a lot!

I loved the performances on the Darkness tour for the sheer force and passion of a band both proving and discovering how great there really were. (By the way Brucie, I know you're reading this... Isn't it about time you gave us that Darkness box set we're all waiting

Restaurants should realise that if they want customers to carry on dining out then they need to lower their prices. It's not rocket science.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
