Vote for Larry

Just in time for the November election comes the sequel to The Gospel According to Larry entitled Vote for Larry. Author Janet Tashjian writes about a high school boy who tries to make a difference. When I visited at Tolman High School for a health fair in November of last year, a student told me about this book. It wasn't until earlier this month that I read it and just now finished reading the sequel.

Both books are great and I can see why that student was so excited about the book. The books made me think about my own involvement in change and thinking about keeping my number of possessions to a minimum. Unlike Larry I do love to shop, but mostly for off-beat and inexpensive things. Last weekend I actually went to the mall and didn't buy anything. It was still fun!
