This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

I LOVED this book! New favorite book of the year. I loved the character, the plot, the story, everything!!!! I felt this book really speaks to anyone who has ever felt nervous about going to school, scared about who they are going to eat lunch with, afraid to walk down the hallways. One of the best books i've ever read. I finished this book in 3 days, just could not put on down.

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

I loved this book. I am becoming a BIG fan of Liane Moriarty and this book did not disappoint. I think I was so drawn to this book because of the three sisters. While I am not a triplet I also have two sisters who are my best friends and found the story quirky and fun. Highly recommend to all! Those Kettle Girls!!!!!
