You will never ever look at a bottle of olive oil again, and you may find yourself stuck in the oil aisle at the grocery store, trying to find just the right blend or variety of oil. You have been warned.
John Schwartz tell a heart breaking story of the suicide attempt of his gay son, and his family's reaction and path to helping him love himself. Highly recommended for families of LGBT teens and young adults.
This novel is a very strange take on a near-future state, and it doesn't waste any time explaining why or how it came to be that way. Just get along for the ride.
If you are expecting lots of explosions and etc, you are in the wrong place. If you are looking for an interesting discussion of the impacts of war on people far removed from it, you might be in the right place. The movie is slow by modern standards, but I think the pacing makes the movie just right.
I find Gretchin Rubin to be a fantastic down to earth writer. She is honest about what works for her and always cautions that what makes her happy won't necessarily make you happy. This was a nice followup to her original The Happiness Project, with a lot more focus on family and friends.
