Our Favorite Reads in the Last 10 Years

Mom and I love literature, and we are avid readers and book club participants in addition to our writing. To both of us a book is a favorite if long after you put it down you still wonder about the characters. We hope you will wonder and care about Krista and Abby long after you are finished with Depression Cookies.
