What was my favorite book out of the 4 we just read?
It would have to be Little Bee. The second half of The Bell Jar was noisome while reading it with all the depressing parts. Catcher, though not terrible, didn't have that much to it. Bean Trees was so memorable that I had to think for a moment on what the 4th book was, which tells you how much I liked that book too. I did not stay impassive while reading any of them, but Little Bee tugged at my emotions in a moving, not crushing way.
