The First day of the Rest of My Life - Cathy Lamb This author takes horrifying events and somehow adds enough of a comic twist in the surrounding characters to make them not so hard to read about. That is the only way I can explain it. In the case of this book, there was more than one secret, more than one terrifying event but the author made them work. I enjoyed this book and the ending gave enough hope to let the reader know that anything can be overcome.
