OK so not really but sort of, kind of, maybe?
I was going to post Tales from the Tree as in Dollar Tree and write some things about Lulu’s experience with a minimum wage stocking/cashier position. I never did more than one or two stories because quite frankly the tales were sad so very very sad.
I picked this particular book because:
- it’s based in Austin and I’m a native Texan
- the author’s last name is Helton and I know it’s very sweet individual who’s maiden name is Helton
- it takes place in the 80s and that’s the generation of my youth
- and the cover just caught my attention as I was quickly in and out of the library on my lunch break looking for yet another book to tide me over until the next book club selection.
