Six Down, Three to Go

Thursday's YA Read was The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler.

Thursday was a tough day -- we left the house at 6:15 am to make it to Children's for Birdy's surgery at 7:15.  The morning at the hospital seemed to go so quickly and Birdy was a trooper.  She charmed everyone with her wit and her cuteness.  The surgery went well, we were home by noon, and I spent the rest of the day on the couch with her, trying to convince her that she should be RESTING.

I had a headache and stomach ache myself, so I rested quite a bit myself.  And read.

This was a good choice for a day like yesterday.  Even though there are some serious issues, it's funny and light-hearted in a lot of places.  I'm looking forward to reading the new book she wrote with Jay Asher.
