MAYbe a good book

Defending Jacob by William Landay
Andy Barber is a respected assistant DA in his community, happily married with a son, Jacob. Life is good until his fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.As Jacob’s parents protect him, the facts surface, and it’s a trial of loyalty but perhaps not justice. GREAT book.♥♥

Moonlight on Linoleum by Terry Helwig
Terry Helwig and her five sisters were raised (and I use that word causiously) by their very young, inexperienced and selfish mother, Carola. I may be a bit jaded about this type of memoir since so many have surfaced in the past few years. In fact so many have been published that you begin to wonder if dysfunction is the new normal.

Moon-walking with Einstein by Joshua Foer
WOW is all I can say. Joshua Foer writes about his yearlong quest to improve his memory and make it to the United States Memory Championships. With help from some of the top "mental athletes" he trains his mind and in the process writes an incredible book! I was so intrigued that I’ve researched mind mapping and memory palaces. Gotta love a book that inspires you to Google.♥♥♥

Thought I'd share a quote from memoir writer Mary Karr. She defines a dysfunctional family as: Any family with more than one member. Thanks for listing Moonlight on Linoleum. Sounds like you're an avid reader--wish I had all the books you've read stored in MY head.
