Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts

5 stars
R- 2

I have to be honest, I wasn't looking forward to this one.  It was more of a "let's get it over with so it can be crossed off the list" than a "oh hey that looks good".

Just didn't seem like my style.

And it wasn't really.  It's not the kind of thing I read a lot of (unless it's on a Reader's Choice list, lol), but I ended up really enjoying it.

Similar themes to The Language of Flowers, certainly.

I haven't seen the movie, but I just looked it up on IMDB and holy funny, Dylan Bruno (Colby on Numb3rs) plays Willy Jack!!  I seriously think I need to see it just for that, because that cracks me up.

Overall, recommended.
