Not as good as the first book - felt like loose ends were tied up hastily in the end. And the battle with the capital? Pretty weak.

Light and fun read with some nuggets of wisdom - I recommend the audiobook version, since it's read by Tyra and her mom.

A fun read - but nowhere near as compelling as the first book in this series.

The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Ray Hinton

Really good book with a powerful message. Starts off sort of rambling - lots of hard to follow rabbit trails - but tightens up as the story progresses. Makes a terrific case for ending the death penalty. Highly recommend!

I didn’t read this back in the day, because I thought it would be lame. I was wrong; I loved it!

bell hooks
“Simply put, feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression. This was a definition of feminism I offered in Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center more than 10 years ago. It was my hope at the time that it would become a common definition everyone would use. I liked this definition because it did not imply that men were the enemy. By naming sexism as the problem it went directly to the heart of the matter. Practically, it is a definition which implies that all sexist thinking and action is the problem, whether those who perpetuate it are female or male, child or adult. It is also broad enough to include an understanding of systemic institutionalized sexism. As a definition it is open-ended. To understand feminism it implies one has to necessarily understand sexism.”

C.S. Lewis
“But now I discovered the wonderful power of wine. I understood why men become drunkards. For the way it worked on me was not at all that it blotted out these sorrows, but that it made them seem glorious and noble, like sad music, and I somehow great and revered for feeling them.”
C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces
