Get the tissue...
I saw a trailer recently for an upcoming movie that intrigued me. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It wasn't playing in any of our theaters so I went to MCL to see if the book was available for loan. Two copies, zero available, ten holds already placed. No chance I get it anytime soon from the library. Checked at Costco -- none found. Barnes and Noble online had it -- sold out in the local store. Amazon of course had many available both new and used -- didn't really want to wait for it. Rechecked the library and they had it available on CD... Book on CD -- what a concept. Started listening last night before bed.
Oh my goodness... I'm on chapter 6 and I can't pull those noise canceling headphones off. I'm thinking I might curl up with my ipod this afternoon. This is a young adult book so I am HOPING no f-words will be ringing in my ears.
I won't ruin it for you except to say that it is told from the perspective of a nine year old. The girls and I are going to first listen to the story and then go watch it.
