If I haven't said it enough, I love the library. I am such a book nerd. When do I have time for all this reading and running?! Early mornings and late evenings, I suppose. I used to be such a book lover that I'd spend most of my money on books instead of clothes or fun trips. I just couldn't get enough. But I realized that most of those books just sat on a shelf. So to the library I went, which has become even more fun as our library offers children's programs. Lil has so much fun at them.
So usually when I look for a new book, I go online and search there "New to Collection" section. I have to wait a few weeks for books to come in, as they are so popular.
That is how I stumbled upon Fin and Lady.
This book was wonderful to read. I love books that focus on relationships. Fin and Lady was a relationship that is so unique, I was constantly trying to make sense of it through the book. Both characters, though they are very different, are colorful and likeable.
A great thing about this book is that it goes through the historical periods of the 50-70's. Its as though you are watching a film. Schine does a great job of descriptive language and creating dynamic characters with an emotional plot.
Tears were shed. And I may have laughed a few times too.
A wonderful read and quick too.
I gave this book 4 out 5 hearts.
Check this book out along with others from your local library!
