My Thoughts On The Book: I was totally hooked on this book from page one. I could not put it down and felt as if each story was my own. Carman shares wonderful stories/lessons with the reader that are so very touching, funny, and sometimes sad. The moments of introspection at the end of each story were so helpful in summing up my own reactions or feelings that were unearthed in each story. I think "Turn Down The Music" touched me the most. I felt as if Carman and I shared the same skin. I love music and when I am traveling alone...on my hour commute home each day I am the one who rolls down her windows, turns up the music, sings at the top of her lungs, and enjoys the peace and release I feel. I am also the one God told to turn down the music and listen. I did. I am not saying I don't still jam when I am alone...my music tastes have changed over the years. This one little chapter really touched my soul. "It Doesn't Matter What Everyone Is Doing, " brought back a flood of memories from my own childhood....and from my role as a mother. Wrapped up in 32 wonderful chapters of life.....I found a nugget to keep for future reference. I loved this book! I know you will too.
