A Time to Kill - by John Grisham
I FINALLY finished this! I started it last semester and kinda read it off and on whenever I had a few minutes to spare. For comparison, it usually takes me about a day to a week to read a book (that I like).
Anyway, I wanted to read it because it's the first book he wrote, and I loooove his books. It was FANTASTIC!! I had a lot of trouble reading the very beginning because it started with the crime, which was absolutely horrible. Once I got past that, though, it was a great read. The main character was cool - it's interesting reading from the POV of a defense lawyer since we're usually on the side of the prosecution in Law & Order, etc. There were good characters, lots of humor (despite the subject matter), and a plot guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat - especially once you get further along in the book. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story.
Here's the description on the back of the book:( Spoilerish )
Holly Marie Combs:
The actress who played Piper
on Charmed (icon). I looked her up on info.com (as I tend to do pretty often with random people) and it says that her mom was 15
when she had her, and her mom's name was Lauralei
! Sound familiar? Is that just a weird coincidence? For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, in the show Gilmore Girls
Gilmore was 16
when she had her daughter.
