I really liked this second book in the Kidd series. It kept me guessing right to the end. The creative ways Kidd goes about righting wrongs is intriguing to me.

Donated clothes that I didn't want or need anymore to goodwill. I also donated blood. And offered to cut my neighbors grass.

Checked out a Hot Pick Title- Best sellers. The book that I checked out and red is called In the Unlikely Event.

In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen, and in love for the first time, a succession of airplanes fell from the sky, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of actual events that Blume experienced in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, she paints a vivid portrait of a particular time and place—Nat King Cole singing “Unforgettable,” Elizabeth Taylor haircuts, young (and not-so-young) love, explosive friendships, A-bomb hysteria, rumors of Communist threat. And a young journalist who makes his name reporting tragedy. Through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on.
