Reading it again, right now. Loved it.

I loved this book so much I'm reading again, right now, right when I just finished it. One reason I'm doing this is because I'm reading it with my book club and we are not meeting for a couple of weeks. I often read ahead and nearly forget books by reading another one or two before we meet.
But the primary reason I'm reading it again was because I want to experience the characters, particularly one character, Billy, all over again, right away. I love him. I want to read again how he felt when someone touched him for the first time in years. I want to re-experience how he found himself loving someone and ventured out into a scary world for the sake of love. I want to hear again how he turned a fear into a friend. I want to see him dance down the street with Grace to school.
I've read three books by this author now. I have to say, I should not have started with the one that I did. I didn't care for it and thought I would never read anything else by her. In truth, I didn't recognize her name when I read the second one. I really enjoyed that book too so I gave this one a chance. I'm so glad I did and I'm so glad I recommended it to my book club.
This book is so insightful of human nature and it caused me to feel like there is good in this world, and unexpected good in people.
