    And you can guarantee if you ask them you'll get a mixed bag of answers, including some that you had never even thought about.

    My Mother in law sent me this book. I only read it when I finished with the other 100 and had nothing else to read. I was mesmerized, but when I tried to read another by LeHane I just couldn't get into it.

    Yeah, you're right. Maybe it's not such a good idea.

    Me: So you've all done the reading. I'd like to open the discussion by asking, There's a lot of humanistic evil in this book. Who do you think is the most evil?

    [Student raises hand.]

    Me: Englighten us, Mr. Wilson.

    Wilson: Okay, I think it's the mute brother.

    Me: Really? Care to share why?

    Wilson: Okay, because, like, this one time? My brother had the car? And I had to go to Cabo? And I was seeing this girl Stacy with this rock-it body, and she was going, too? And my brother was at work at Sizzler? And he said he'd give me a ride to the airport? And I said, "Okay, dude, but you have to come right home and give me a ride after Sizzler because I have to get to the airport to see Stacy." And he was like, "Okay"? But then I waited and waited and he never showed? And I was like, "What the hell...?" And it turns out later that he stayed afterward to smoke out with some dishwashers at Sizzler? And I later learned that Stacy met some other guys while she was in Cabo? And I never heard from her again. So, yeah, if a brother betrays you, they can be, like, so totally evil...! You know what I mean?

    Me: [...] Mr. Wilson, we are the dumber for your answer.

    Playing With Boys, the second novel from Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, author of The Dirty Girls Social Club. Seems like a fun, Latina-centric read

    I just read "To the Nines" by Janet Evanovich and now I am reading "The Green Mile" by Stephen King.

    Recently read books which I would recommend:

    A Widow for One Year by John Irving
    Lost Boy, Lost Girl by Peter Straub
    Every Secret Thing by Laura Lippman
    Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
    The Posionwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
