"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"My brain followed that thought through the dust of the velvet curtains, over the stack of plywood left in a heap beside the risers, and around the folding chairs resting against the wall."
I could see the thought floating around the empty stage.
And having lost my father when I was three and having been very active in theatre in high school and college there were parts of this store that I could relate to and feel more deeply.
This wasn't just about Megan the girl who was saved, but about everyone in her life from her little sister to her teachers. And about how we all look at death and how we deal or don't deal with it.
A truely outstanding work!
‘You can’t look dignified and run. Gym was the darkest year of my life.’
‘She made disgust its own dialect. If she didn’t have such smooth, plump cheeks and eyes the color of graham crackers I would swear she was a bitter old woman.’
‘I tried to summon God under my breath but I wasn’t sure he did skinny-dipping duty.’
‘It’s not fair to accept credit for bringing a bandage when you cut out somebody’s heart.’
‘You are one of my favorite people on this rolling blue ball.’
I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially if you have ever doubted you are worth the trouble, done something scary, met somebody who hated you, fallen in love, or if you just need to laugh. This book touched so many chords with me that my husband had to take a picture of me grinning and giggling at my pink tablet while reading all evening on the couch.
Also worthy to note: language and other aspects are clean and appropriate for teens, the characters have good relationships with their parents, and while not religious or preachy, it even mentions going to church.
Great job, Regina Sirois, on another great novel!
