Shhh! Don't tell my professors.

I'm doing something I really don't have the time to do. At least not while in school. At least not when I'm taking 18 units and should be reading Ch. 9 in my Psych-Core Concepts book since I have an assignment due today...that I haven't started...That something is reading a novel.

I'm reading "The Wonder Spot" by Melissa Bank and I came across this line, which reminds me why I love words and other people's ability to aptly turn a phrase or string sentences together to capture the exact emotion of a moment or situation:

"I felt sure that everyone was looking at me, and then realized that no one was, and I experienced the distinct shame of each."

I imagine we've all been there.

So is the Wonder Spot good? I am looking for some new books to read.

The Wonder Spot was different than I'd expected (not a cohesive novel, but more a series of vignettes), but the author is an exceptional at crafting sentences, and I found the plot relatively enjoyable and interesting. I'd recommend it with those things in mind.
