The God of Animals: A Novel by Aryn Kyle
The God of Animals: A Novel

geogguru, July 16, 2008

I chose this book because it is the Sisters branch of the Deschutes Public Library book for this month. I am not sure why they chose it, but I am SO GLAD that I took their interest in it as a recommendation. I loved reading it -- twice.

I have taught middle school, so smiled when she got the girls' ever-changing friendships just right. I "knew" the cheerleaders, the twins. the advanced class students. It all felt familiar. Even the teacher.

(In the second read, I always notice more about a book's treatment of geography. This one is wonderfully accurate.)
Thanks, Sisters!
