It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living by Dan Savage and Terry Miller
It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living

3Kcats, May 29, 2011

I knew that the It Gets Better Project had a powerful mesage, but reading the book was more than I expected. It wasn't the authors whose names I knew that had the strongest, most powerful message, but those regular everyday folks whose stories resonanted and stayed with me. I highly recommend this book.

This book stayed with me for days after finishing it. I would catch myself thinking about it and realize how much it affected me. Definitely recommend it.

I read this book while on vacation. I was going to leave it in Hawaii after I was done, but it had so much information that I brought it home with me so that I could read it again.

This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation by Barbara Ehrenreich
This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation

I've read "Nickel and Dimed" and looked forward to reading this. Ehrenreich has a unique way of highlighting the economic disparity that exists. Each 3-5 page essay allows her to get right to the point she wants to make. Sometimes they feel like rants, but justifiable rants.

Enjoyable, quick read. The intensity of Jackie and Kay's relationship is easy to relate to. That first love is different from any other.
