Singing With the Top Down

Debrah WIlliamson’s debut women’s fiction novel is AMAZING. I’m giving it to the head of the English department with a strong recommendation that it be added to the curriculum. It truly is a new classic. People have compared the protagonist, Pauly, to To Kill a Mockingbird’s Scout. It’s a valid comparison.
Can you tell I liked it? 🙂
It’s been a good year for my tbr list. So far I’ve loved most of the books I’ve read.

DD’s desire to be a professional photographer was only hightened last week when she took photos of President Clinton. He was here for a friend’s funeral and her photo made the cover of the paper she works for.
The media had been directed to one side of the church, but her boss walked around, saw all the secret service on the other side and called her over.
She said all the stuff we see about the secret service on TV is nothing compared to the real thing. 🙂 I thought she meant TV made too big a deal of it. NOPE, she said it was WAY more impressive in person. This was her second top secret assignment. And she’s still a kid. She’s lucky.
This year she’s taken the PBR, The Globetrotters and Clinton. Not bad work if you can get it. She works for free, but her portfolio is going to be awesome, so it’s worth it.
