I got off to a slow start with this book. The main character was hard for me to feel 'connected' with. I couldn't relate to or understand her compulsion to keep buying things to make herself feel better. But as her heart was softened and she began to grow closer to God, I really began to love her! Here's the paragraph that really hit me: "And when I cut away the rot from a case of oozing tomatoes that came from only heaven knows where, I experienced euphoria like I'd never known. I knew that at that moment I was doing the holy will of God. I was exactly where I was supposed to be; it was holy and good and just. Merciful--to me, the chief of sinners--and humbling. I shouldn't have been privy to such blessing, such favor from God as to serve right there, right then. He called me out to do this, and I deserved non of it. I could have been in my house at this moment, sitting on my plush couch with a cup of warm tea, a Bible in my lap, and a study book beside me begging God to make me whole while doing none of His dirty work. But no. I cut rot off tomatoes in a roach-infested kitchen off North Avenue." This author definitely challenges my comfort zone.....but in a good way. For me, I need to be reminded that I am to be living out my faith and my love for God. It's not just about studying the Bible, but about applying it!

This was the first book by the beats that I read. Mr. Clark, my 10th grade American History teacher recommended it. Thus my love affair with the beat generation began. How I envied anyone that could just get up and leave.
