Re-reading the Hush, Hush series. I finished the first book in a few days, now I’m on the second chapter of Crescendo. Then Silence, and the final book, Finale o the 23rd! I can’t wait.
“On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life—the fissures in her parents’ marriage, the loss of old friends, the hopeful anguish of first love, the bizarre behavior of her grandfather who, convinced of a government conspiracy, spends his days obsessively cataloging his possessions. As Julia adjusts to the new normal, the slowing inexorably continues.”
Seriously fantastic book, you guys. If you get the chance to read it, please do.

This was me in grade school. I had this teeny backpack purse that had to fit my entire life in case every single home I ever knew was mysteriously burned in a fire at the same time and I needed the things in my purse to survive on.
My purse has gotten just the teeniest bit lighter since then. XDDD
