It’s Treat Tuesday! What are you reading….I mean eating?!
Thank you Shannon Houghton for the awesome meme picture! Check out Shannon’s fabulous blog!
The Center of Everything by Linda Urban goes well with Turtles candy bars. Actually, donuts would go better but I didn’t have any of those. So I was forced to eat these Turtles instead. They were almost as satisfying as Linda Urban’s new book.

My first tweet after I read The Center of Everything was: “If you are a writer and want to know how to make the ordinary become extraordinary read Linda Urban’s books .” I am always amazed by her ability to make me fall in love with the characters in her books. I literally want to know them in real life. The characters in The Center of Everything are fascinating and real. You can imagine yourself in Ruby’s shoes and making the wish, looking for the signs. You think of your own grandmother and what she meant to you….what she means to you. And you Listen. You listen with your whole heart to the story. Ruby’s story.
The Center of Everything is all about human connections, wishes and signs. It is all about the constellations. Will the stars align? Will the characters in this story come together or fall apart? I highly recommend you read this book to find out!
I know you will also love Hound Dog True and A Crooked Kind of Perfect! The audio books are excellent for both of these books.
