Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante
Turn of Mind

Kristin Bell, August 9, 2011

This book was enthralling and disturbing at the same time. The portrayal of Jennifer's mind going in and out of reality seemed quite realistic. The mind is like that with diseases of the brain it seems. The unreality of illness and how things shift and come and go seemed well crafted and well-thought out, or perhaps I should say well-lived since the author's mother does have Alzheimer's. A good read. Spell-binding.

Devil in the Details: Scenes from an Obsessive Girlhood by Jennifer Traig
Devil in the Details: Scenes from an Obsessive Girlhood

Kristin Bell, September 4, 2010

"Devil in the Details: Scenes From an Obsessive Girlhood" by Jennifer Traig will tickle your inner OCD child if you have one. I'm not a full blown OCD person, but I can relate to some of what Traig writes about, and she shows us with much wit what a full blown disorder is like. It is great that she has such a wonderful sense of humor about a disorder that is so crippling to her and so many millions of people like her. For those who don't understand Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, this gives a good glimpse into a life that is severely train-wrecked by it. I give this four stars instead of five, because I found the ending a bit weak compared to the rest of the book that kept me enthralled. My only unanswered question is: am I the only one who noticed that the candies on the cover of the book aren't COMPLETELY straight???!!! haha.

Major Problems in the History of American Families and Children by Anya Jabour
Major Problems in the History of American Families and Children

Kristin Bell, September 3, 2010

“Major Problems In the History of American Families and Children” edited by Anya Jabour is one of the books in the Houghton Mifflin ‘Major Problems in American History’ series. The book is a tremendous resource of both primary source documents and academic writings on the subject of American families and children. The book helps to train college students to look for primary sources and how to evaluate those sources by providing examples of discourse related to many of the primary sources in the book. The primary sources in the book are interesting and provoked further exploration of topics which include families in bondage, Native American, Victorian, frontier, Civil War and immigrant families to name a few. It also tackles the case of orphans, families of the 1950′s, the welfare system and late 20th century family politics. An example of what a good textbook should look and operate like. Bravo!
