A Break for Recovery and Reading

I'm taking a brief break from knitting - my shoulder and hands are screaming at me! So while I rub my sore areas with ointment and warm them with a hot pack, I'm reading a wonderful book.

Tomato Girl is the first novel by Jayne Pupek. I picked this book up from the new shelf at the library because I thought it would be a good book to review. (I am the book reviewer for the Mercer County Public Library.)

I started this book a few hours ago, and I can't put it down! It is sad, but heartwarming and this new author has a fabulous voice. The story is told from the point of view of an 11 year old girl, who has to deal with growing up before her time.

I'll post a link as soon as I have my review posted.
