The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

All The Ugly Wonderful Things - Bryn Greenwood - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of All The Ugly Wonderful Things:

How Wavy grew up.

My favorite Bryn Greenwood quote from the book:

"Sometimes, you have to nod, even if you don't agree."

Questions to ponder while reading:

When do you call Child Protective Services?

What is a family?

My review of All The Wonderful Things:

The story sucked me right in.

A dark, dark tale of growing up in a neglected/abusive environment and not for the faint/young of heart.

I struggled a lot with everyone's ages. You may too.
