Follow Friday! #3

Question: Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does in bring you comfort every time you read it?).  

Hmmm. This is a hard one! I think all books I read affect me in some kind of way. I guess the one that had most effect on me was A Child Called It. It's a great, very very sad book about child abuse and it made me view things so differently. I think that book is a book that EVERYONE should read at least once in their life. The author is actually the child in the book and his voice is a voice that everyone should hear. I'll review it later if you want more details!


  1. A Child Called It was a very emotional book. I remember reading it and crying and not understand how people could be so cruel. Great Choice!

  2. Great choice! There are so many books to choose from; this was quite the difficult question for me. I'd love if you checked out what I picked for this FF :D

    Btw, LOVE THE BLOG... I quickly became a NEW follower.

  3. I don't think I could read a book on child abuse. To difficult for me to get thru! There are a lot of cruel and evil people out there.
