Why was I so excited about driving to Hiawatha for a book discussion? Uninterrupted driving time to relax with a book on tape! I choose ALT ED by Catherine Atkins. The story is my favorite kind, ensemble high school. It has a breakfast club feel, without the big pot smoking scene that I rarely saw since it was edited out on cable... -- anyway, the kids attend a weekly group therapy session to avoid being expelled for each of their particular offenses. Growing, learning, changes, but NOTHING CHANGES and no one does anything too radical or touchy-feely. I mean, it is still a book, not a cheesy Hollywood movie!
I listened to it. 5 hours.
