A great dystopian novel. A little slow to get into it, but overall a great read that demands a lot of attention on the part of the reader.

Good story. I didn't realize it was the last in this series, but it didn't really matter.

A candid and heartfelt memoir/personal growth book - a collection of essays/blogs about the "cages" that society imposes on girls and women, and the freedom that comes when they "untame" themselves. Glennon Doyle tells her story of the harm caused by the cages she'd been in - the cage of beauty that caused bulimia; the cage of fear and shame that caused alcoholism; and the cage of marriage that kept her in an unhappy and unfulfilling relationship with a cheating husband She writes of how she "untamed" herself by recovering from bulimia, becoming sober, and leaving her husband when she found real love with a woman - soccer star Abby Wambach. She passes on to readers the lessons she's learned and has shared with her kids and friends, and that she continues to learn.

Again Again

This YA novel is a quirky and creative take on the multiverse, written in a poetic-prose style. Adelaide is spending the summer at her boarding school, where her father teaches, while her mother is miles away taking care of her younger brother as he tries to recover from opioid addiction. Her boyfriend Mikey has recently broken up with her, so when she meets Jack, a new student, she is instantly attracted to him and pursues him. The story plays out several "what-if" storylines in different possible alternate universes: they get together but he has a girlfriend; they get together but he'd rather spend time with his friend Oscar than her; she tries to get his interest, but he tells her he's not into her; she drops Jack when Mikey calls her again but then stands her up; she goes out with Oscar instead of Jack. In all of the parallel timelines, two things are constant: her love for her brother and her unresolved anger at how his addiction has hurt himself and their family; and her need to have a boyfriend as a distraction from her anxiety and pain. By the end, she faces her emotions; begins to trust Toby's recovery; and starts to feel hopeful about all the possibilities of the future. Worth reading - again and again!
