On deck! Right before bed!
No manner of earthly logic explains the post-bath and toothbrush exercise ritual. Parents who notice it might appreciate the opportunity for a head scratch during the fevered tedium of bedtime. What does this have to do with exercising after bathing and tooth-brushing? Imagine the terror of repetition without relief among the flood-bound Boynton hippos. This is also the terror of new parenting: the sameness of every day—the same rituals, the same books, the same diapers and tears and wails and suckles, joy and pride all bound up with the dread and exhaustion of infancy.
This selfsame day is made special by a tiny, bizarre adjustment, which offers comfort for rhino and bear and bunny. The spent reader might do well to heed this sage advice.
In the book, a hippo opts out of a series of activities partaken by her compatriots, each time invoking the titular refrain. A hog and a frog cavort in the bog, for example, and a moose and a goose together have juice… but not the hippopotamus. First, that the hippopotamus is bashful, unsure how to insert herself into the delights of her peers.

In the spring, Joshua and the other fifth graders were given a tour of Harry S. Truman Junior High School, where he would go next year. The school was much bigger than Lincolncrest. The floor plan was confusing, and there were long, imposing rows of lockers everywhere. Instead of one teacher, he would have five, one for each subject. It was scary, Joshua thought, but he also thought it could not be any worse than Lincolncrest.
He had not learned how to achieve, but he'd learned how to survive. Karen Marks has moved on since then, but her newest patient seems to be the exact replica of her son. Suddenly, old wounds are re-opened and pain has found its way back to her heart. Told in a diary narrative, story transitions between past and present. On top of the brimming guilt, Karen must also contend with allegations on her dead, gay husband.
Talk about a therapist needing a therapist. Story was simply written with a rooted connection to the characters. The pace was rather slow, but the read was still fairly interesting. An okay read. Certainly not marriage and babies. But, still, she liked being around Seth.
Something told her that there was more there than she thought. Casey was kind of neurotic about Seth, over-analyzing and over-thinking every move he made. Story was overall well-written and the characters were likable. I thought it was okay. A little girl who lost her father and resented her mother; but it all changed when her uncle moved in. He made my lunches for school and carried me to my bed when I fell asleep in front of the TV.
As I developed, it changed. I've never read this author. I've only read one book by Tami Hoag I really enjoy Sandra Brown's books, though I haven't read many of the 5 above.

I have never read any of her books. I love her novels. Jul 03, PM. Sorry, I haven't read her yet. I always thought she was a romance writer and I'm not much of a fan of that genre. To be fair, I'll check her stuff out on the Fantastic Fiction website and see if there might be something I'd enjoy reading by her. Jun 12, AM.
