Have you read These Is My Words by Nancy Turner? I just did and WOW!
I had a hard time at first because of the "uneducated" type writing style (I am not sure the best way to describe it). I didn't think I was going to like it, but then I got swept away into what I would say is now one of my favorite books.
Talk about a love story.
I loved that the book made me angry, scared, sad, irritated, anxious, excited, thrilled and thoughtful.
I also loved that after I finished reading it I could not stop thinking about it!
If you have not read this book, run as fast as your legs can carry you to get it. I am behind the times because it has been out for quite a while, along with books 2 and 3 (I have them on reserve at the library). I will let you know what I think of those as well.
If you don't have plans for Valentines read it!
LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT!
