    Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl

    The Curious incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is a great book especially if you know anyone who is on the autism spectrum. It won many awards and will make you laugh til you cry if any of it rings true to you.

    To laugh out loud...any of the Ann B. Ross books (the entire series on Miss Julia is fantastic) but make sure you read the series in order. Focuses on a southern lady who is so proper that you will find yourself laughing out loud. My husband thinks I have lost my mind on it.

    Also love virtually everything by Wally Lamb, Summer Sisters by Judy Blume and a number of Anita Shreve books especially The Weight of Water.

    Fly a Little Higher by Laura Sobiech. A mo5ers retelling of life when her son is diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Warning: do not read this book without Kleenex handy. It is fantastic but is an emotional roller coaster but so inspirational and worthy of reading.
    Tall Chimneys! I read Tall Chimneys a few months ago and loved it! It's my favorite book now.

    Also like Wally Lamb books.

    The Grand Adventure of Prince Usab and His Horse

    This book was silly and I liked it a lot. Not a lot of people did it seems and thatís a real shame.

    Confession: Iíve started to note books Iíve read and liked rather than what Iím reading at the moment. And Iím discovering new authors from some of the posts here so thatís nice. 😊

    Oh, and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls and her other fantastic book...Half-Broke Horses. Both are fantastic books.

    i would love to hear what books moved you as a child/pre-teen or teenager. Boy, this will show our age.

    most memorable book as a pre-teen: Are you there God, It’s Me Margaret? By Judy Blume. And several years later I read a book that taught me about courage in the face of serious adversity....The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom (maybe another reason why I love Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl)
