A few weeks ago I read Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine. I couldn’t stop my tears at the end of the book . . . ah, (sniff) the power of the printed word.
This made me remember some others that have brought tears. They include:
Where the red fern grows I was listening to this one and honestly needed an entire box of Kleenex during the last tape. Even though I’m a cat person, I love a good dog story and this one is right at the top.
Because of Winn-Dixie Another great dog story (maybe I should consider getting a dog?!?). I even cried at the movie.
Mrs. Mike This one goes back to my college days–I clearly remember sitting at the desk in my dorm. I stayed up ’til the wee hours to finish this one–quietly sobbing so as not to wake roommates.
Brave Irene Irene is persistent and even though the blizzard slows her down, she doesn’t give up. What a great message this one sends!
Has the printed word moved you to tears? I’ll be happy to share some tissues!
