The Things That Keep Us Here - Carla Buckley I have to come back to this book and add.....After reading this book, I found two dead birds; one in my backyard and one in my son's yard! It was like whooeee!! The author did such a great job of realistically portraying the way things could be; of making me think, "Yes, this could all happen!" Certainly gave me something to think about, and three months later I still haven't forgotten it!
