Where the Heart Is

Woohoo! The first book review on our blog! Sweet.

Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts

This book was pretty good. It follows a girl, Novalee, through her adventures. It starts off with her pregnant and 17 and traveling to California from Oklahoma with her boyfriend. On the way she stops off at a Wal-Mart to go to the bathroom and her boyfriend leaves her there. She eventually has her baby in that Wal-Mart and she stays in that town with her baby. It's a self-discovery type of book. I wouldn't really recommend that you girls read it only because there are some crude parts that weren't really necessary. I want to watch the movie, though. I think it has Natalie Portman in it.

Overall: B
Language: PG
Sexuality: PG-13
Would I read it again?: Probably not. But the once was okay.
