How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly - Connie May Fowler This is a wonderful book that takes you through a day with Clarissa Burden and how just 24 hours can in fact change your life. That and the help of a ghost. There is a lot of drama packed into this novel. This would make an excellent novel for a book group since there are so many things to discuss about the characters and there is enough to love and hate about the story (always a good idea for active discussions). I am not a reader who enjoys a lot of descriptions, but Fowler does a great job of making you smell the flowers, taste the food and see the sights with minimal words. (BRAVO!)
