Hi all!
I hope you had a great first week of June!  The weather here has been... unexpected.  We are all a little restless.  But, as it is raining outside, maybe everyone has taken the time to start reading our June book!

Take the time to post any initial thoughts you have on the book!
Did you enjoy it?  Do you dislike it?
Did you laugh/cry/wonder/roll your eyes?
How does the cover make you feel?

Some topics to think about and/or discuss!
How does the cover portray the quirkiness of this family?
Who is more relatable, Annie or Buster (or are they completely unrelatable to you?)
Did you read the quotes at the beginning of the book?  If so, how do these quotes prepare you for this book?  What did you expect would follow?  Did the first chapter meet your expectations?

You can post your favorite quote so far, too!  So many things to write about!  So much excitement!

On pace to finish at the end of June: 84 pages completed
Vote so we know how much to divulge! 

Much love,
BeBC

I'll be the first to mention that I am really enjoying this book. Ok, ok, I chose the book, but I am really excited about it still! Some of the situations the kids find themselves in in the flashbacks are hilarious, and while I'm not necessarily laughing out loud, I do find them humorous and they put me in a good mood!

Annie and Buster are hard for me to relate to, but for some reason I feel really connected to them. I find I know where they are coming from, and I think that has to do with how the book is written. I like that present day and past are both interchanged a bit! Makes the story move along quickly and at a fun pace.
