but I also know that life goes on

Can Henry rebuild his life after the worst-case bully scenario?
a poorly chosen book cover for a heartbreaking tale

I just read The Reluctant Journal of Henry K Larsen by Susin Nielsen.

It takes only a moment for Henry's life to fall apart. In the wake of IT, Henry reluctantly begins to record his thoughts in a journal. The subject matter is terribly dark, but Susin Nielson's storytelling is heart warming and beautifully written.

I loved this book. It was brutal, and reminds us all that IT changes everything.

  1. Can I borrow this Patty? Need some other recommendations. Just finished "Out of My Mind". Really enjoyed it.

  2. I love Susin Nielsen. I just borrowed this one from the library and I'm excited to start. Sounds like this story might be a bit darker than her others, though.
