    Here are three book suggestions for you.

    If you haven’t read “Sweetness in the Belly” by Camilla Gibb, you should. It’s a remarkable book–the story of a white girl growing up as a Muslim in Ethiopia. A real journey, with multiple settings and well-developed characters–hard to put this one down.

    “The Places in Between” by Rory Steward. It’s a true story of a white British government worker who walks across Afghanistan just weeks after the Taliban has been ousted. Fascinating reading, provides a real insight and perspective into Afghanistan and the Muslim culture.

    My final recommend is “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls. This story is also true and equally fascinating. It’s about a mother and father who choose to live in poverty, and sometimes even homeless. The parents are gifted and eccentric, the children all equally bright. It’s a wild and, at times, unbelievable story that will have you laughing one minute and shaking your head in disbelief the next.

    Another great source for good book recommendations is http://www.Juicespot.ca. It’s a website where avid readers share and compare comments on the books they’ve read.

    Hello Paula,

    Try my novel, Stealing Nasreen. Have a look at the “reviews” section of this website to find out more! Serious, but funny. Definitely not dreary.
