Reading Challenge III

Last night, I finished The Book of Lost Things which was an impulse buy at the Borders 2 for 1 table. It's a book about a boy that is grieving the loss of his mother. Now you know why I bought it -- but it has a fantastic quality like Harry Potter.

The boy goes on a quest to find this book (among other things) and discovers himself along the way. I'm not sure that this is really a story about grief. I did however love what the Book of Lost Things actually was. It revealed more to me about the Bible -- especially since the entire book made me believe that it must be the Bible that would solve the boy's problems. Of course, I was wrong. A good read -- even if I am far, far behind Alex.
