On the library shelf:
The Time It Takes to Fall by Margaret Lazarus Dean
I thought this was a new title, but it's been out about a year and the paperback version will be available in February. A girl's coming-of-age story set in Cape Canaveral, Florida right before the Challenger explosion. I am immediately taken back to 4th period freshman year (Orchestra) when we heard the news and watched the footage. Sometimes the inside flap alone is enough to trigger a vivid memory and cause me to snatch up the book and read it before all others.
So that's what I'm doing. It moved to the front of the line. And just like that all my booklist making organization falls apart. What can I say? I'm weak.
