B bought me a bunch of books for Christmas. (Very smart guy, huh?) And I just finished Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl. It was a beautifully written story about a regular girl with a messed up family. I felt like I'd known the characters all my life, after only short introductions.
Overall, the theme that rang with me was forgiveness. The main character's father had to forgive her. But more than that, she needed to forgive herself.
I'm eager to read more of her work. What themes have you noticed in the books you're reading?
