My favorite book of all time isn’t a classic novel. It’s not a thinking piece. It’s won’t go down in history as an epic tale. It isn’t an exquisite example of writing. But I love this book. I happened to read it at an important time in my life. By that, I mean puberty.
It was a time when I felt pretty bad about my crooked teeth and lack of any boys wanting to ask me to prom. This was junior year of high school. I wasn’t asked to the prom. No one asked me. It was devastating. It was something I never really talk about. But it happened, and there was this book. I think I read it that weekend. All at once.
It was Rebecca Wells’ “The Crowning Glory Of Calla Lily Ponder.” It just made me feel good and remember the important things in life. And really, that I’ll get over it.
