Jenny just gave me water for elephants. I am reading 19 minutes right now. I like it, but it is not my favorite of jodi's, I have liked others more. But it is still great. Water for elephants is better. I have been trying to read How nancy Drew saved my life, really didn't l;ike it. HAve you read bitter is hte new black yet? you must. SO good.
