I have a cold and it looks like I am feeling too muffled* to finish either my review of GOODBYE STRANGER by Rebecca Stead or FUZZY MUD by Louis Sachar. For now, I'll say that they're just as good as you'd expect from those two names.
*It didn't help that I accidentally splashed some of my curry in my eye. You were supposed to make me feel better, curry!
I'll ask a discussion question instead. What are your favorite books when you're feeling ill or otherwise down? What books help you feel better?
