A Long Long Book
I have been leaping forward. (I am exaggerating, of course - I am only on page 54, but I do have a full time job, and kids and the weather is starting to get nice. Oh I am full of excuses!)
My favorite part of chapter 3 was Francie's Dad talking about working - "Now it's work hard all the time or be a bum...no in-between." Is he just whining or is this true? Francie's mom works hard, but she also just went out to a show. Is he just lazy or a realist?
And the last paragraph of chapter 4 - death hiding in the closed for Henny - freaked me out!
