BOOKS I TREASURE
- •Because of Winn Dixie, Kate DiCamilloMy first favorite book. It deals with a lot of big messy things that I was probably too young to understand and I mostly liked it because it was about a dog. But I'd like to think some of those big ideas still got in my head somehow.
- •Wild, Cheryl StrayedI don't consider myself a writer but if one day I do I hope my voice is like Cheryl Strayed's.
- •Not That Kind of Girl, Lena DunhamI almost cried reading the part about Lena's dissociation. It was eerie reading someone's experience with something so hard to define and relating to it on such a deep and fundamental level. The presence of this book on my shelf is profoundly comforting.
