Alan loves to turn to his favorite authors Edgar Rice Burroughs,Tom Clancy, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien, Louis L'Amour, and Mark Twain.
Jen C. likes to curl up with "Slave to Sensation" by Nalini Singh. She says the author builds an exciting and rich world around her characters, and gives her characters flaws that we can all relate to.
Jess B. enjoys "The Catcher in the Rye," by J.D. Salinger. No matter how many times she has read it, it changes her.
Jess P. loves to get lost in the world of Harry Potter and enjoys re-reading J.K. Rowling's novels again and again.
Mallory likes to return to a simpler time by re-reading "Little House in the Big Woods," or any of Laura Ingalls Wilder's novels of growing up on the prairie.
Melanie, can't get enough of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky. She responds to the poetic language the author uses.
Rachel, the biggest Harry Potter fan I know re-reads the series every year. She also reads what she calls "the ultimate comfort book," "Anne of Green Gables," by L.M. Montgomery.
Rebecca is also a devoted L.M. Montgomery fan. She continues to re-read "Jane of Lantern Hill"l by and the authors "Emily" trilogy. Her descriptions are so rich and her characters feel like my best friends.
As for me, I love returning to Stoneybrook, CT and my forever friends in Anne M. Martin's "The Baby-Sitters Club" series. After a really tough day, nothing beats escaping reality with my fictional friends.
