    1900's Schmidt, Gary Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy It is 1911 and things are not going very well for Turner Buckminster III. He is a minister's son and always needs to be on his best behavior. He is especially plagued by this now that his father is the new minister of the First Congregational Church of Phippsburg, Maine. He hates Phippsburg within hours of arriving. The whole town turns out to greet the new minister and his family and a friendly invitation to play baseball turns into humiliation for Turner because they play "Maine baseball" in Phippsburg and the ball doesn't do what it supposed to do. The town is controlled by men in "frock coats" with Mr. Stonecrop, the wealthy owner of a failing shipyard, as the self-proclaimed leader. All of the homes are painted white with green shutters, save one. The house with the yellow shutters is owned by Mrs. Hurd, who seems to be the only person in town with a mind of her own and with whom Turner is friendly. His only other friend is Lizzie Bright Griffin, the sassy and spirited grand-daughter of Preacher Griffin of nearby Malaga Island, a settlement of former slaves and a perceived "blight" on the community by the town fathers. They intend to force the squattors off the island so they can develop it to attract tourists. This beautiful book won both a Newbery and Printz honor medal for 2005. It is a quietly powerful coming-of-age story at once hilariously funny and bitterly sad. Turner and Lizzie are two characters I won't soon forget.

    I read The Secret Life of Bees. The genre is fiction drama. It is set in South Carolina in 1964. Events: A 14 year old white girl, Lily, runs away with her black nanny. Before they run away, Rosaleen, the nanny, tries to vote and is attacked and put into jail. They find a home of three sisters who are beekeepers who take them in.

    The theme is discovering yourself and family. It's a coming of age story.

    I read "Hitchhiker's Guide." Well overrated, imo. Then again, I was a grown woman when I read it, not a young teenage boy.

    The setting was mainly on earth and out in space, on a ship.

    Genre scifi (stupid scifi).

    3 things: earth destroyed, a human stowed away on the space ship, the human found the answer to every question is "42".
