  1. Thanks for sharing these recommendations. They seem great! I personally would like to add “In a Heartbeat” to my must-read list for the near future.

  2. Hey Jen,

    I think you’ll enjoy “In a Heartbeat”; it’s much better than the movie. My favorite is “Jenniemae and James A Memoir in Black and White}. I just finished reading it last week and enjoyed every page.
