In August, I walked into a classroom with 30 kids that were pretty much strangers, sat down, and began the fun dance of "where you from, where'd you go for undergrad, what was your major?"

A phenomenal book written by a phenomenal human, Lauren Kinney! Do you love a high school senior? Get them this book before they head off to college. I wish I had read something like this before my freshman year. Get your copy of Unshakeable today! ALL proceeds today go to a family that has recently lost their father / husband in a tragic accident. Link to book in bottom of my review!
