Greetings From Nowhere

[lhs_star_rg4.00.gif]O'Connor, Barbara. 2008. Greetings From Nowhere.

Greetings From Nowhere can be described in many ways: charming, delightful, satisfying, sweet, and a general all around feel-good treat. It's a story told by many narrators. (Aggie, Willow, Kirby, Loretta) Each voice is unique and just right. This isn't a story of one person, it's a story of a whole community of characters. It's a story about humanity, about life. I can't recommend it highly enough. If you're a fan of Because of Winn Dixie, I think you'll just love this one. It just resonates with rightness.

This one would make a great read aloud to share with the whole family.

Greetings from nowhere is horrible. I didn't like it all. Too bad you're probably going to delete this anyway, you weirdo. So.. first it must be previewed by miss important becky. Hmm. Seems to me like your a power hungry meglomaniac.
