ROOMIES by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando: A Bookanista Review
Happy Thursday all! As you can likely tell by my erratic posting schedule, I am not in a routine at all of late. Really, it's because of some tech problems (WiFi related), traveling, and NaNo. The biggest reason for the spotty posts though - ANEMIA! That's right, I've been a bad girl and have not been watching my iron levels. And as a result I am practically comatose every night. But, I am taking my iron again, and eating nothing but iron rich foods. I should be back to normal in no time...what ever that means.
In the meantime, it's back to another amazing review. On tap for today: ROOMIES by the ever-spectacular Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando. I am so excited about this book. But before I get into that, check out the other Bookanista posts:

About ROOMIES by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando (12/24/13)
I don't even know where to start with this. Maybe it's because my oldest is currently filling out applications for college. Or maybe it's because I am in a state of transition in some friendships and such. Whatever the case, I just know I LOVED this book so much. I loved the voice of the characters, getting to know their lives, and seeing that time of life - a time filled with endings and beginnings, tears and smiles; a time when all you know is that EVERYTHING is in a state of change. I remember that time in my own life, remember how alive I felt...
THAT is what this book captures. It is simple and brilliant. A must read, to be certain.
Check it out on Amazon and other fine retailers!
