I've never seen that many wishers on a book.

Let me know if there is much different in her book than what is in Lost And Found by John Glatt. It hasnt been very long since I read that one and dont want to read two books about the same thing. (Not when I have about 200 TC books waiting for me).

I'm picking up my copy from the library tomorrow.  Yes..it is about Jaycee.  I really am not that interested in the book but I put it on reserve anyway.  I feel like I know the story pretty well.

I saw her on TV and she seems to have adjusted well.

I hope so .But I'm sure certain things will always be with her .Just a really sad story even though it ended well.

Now from 900 to 1153 wishers, and reviews are good on this book. I ordered it from the PBS market and received it today.
