If anyone is looking for a quick read that's well written with good characterization and engaging contemporary themes, I recommend The Abstinence Teacher. Let me know if you read it. I'd be curious to hear what you think.
Mostly I just want to brag about having already finished one of the books. I was so excited last night I stayed up reading long past my bedtime, and I finished this afternoon when I should have been making dinner. Ah, fiction. How I love thee!
Thanks again Melinda.
