Written by Elizabeth Berg.  I must admit I was a bit surprised that the stories are about a 12 year old girl.  But Elizabeth Berg's writing ability made it all so enjoyable.  You can feel the moments.  Her ability to describe feelings is a gift.  Each one was better then the last.  I wish there were more.  I would love to know what happens to Katie.  I haven't posted the third book yet because I'm still attached to it.  Give me time.

As you know, Beth, I just finished listening to True to Form.  What a wonderful job the reader did with this book!  On your recommendation, I will try the other two.  My first by her was Range of Motion, and at the time, I was working with TBI's and was amazed at how exact her research was, for all the characters in that story.
