So on a whim (when my boyfriend told me that what I usually read and listen to is too depressing – Ian McEwan, Ted Gup, Jonatha Brooke, Patty Griffin), I picked up Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden, and I am in love with Dickon. A kid who can tame squirrels and foxes – who is only good – where can I find this guy.
I highly recommend this book for kids, and for adults who need a break from the real world into the world that the good in us is trying to create.
And don’t you dare say you’ve seen the movie and count that good enough.
Happy Reading!
