More reading

Over the weekend, I finished reading The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman. It was recommended by JKSW, who read it for her book club. It's about a Hmong family that lives in the United States and their daughter who has epilepsy. The Hmong (pronounced "mong") culture is so vastly different from American culture and the family and the doctors treating the girl struggle to do what is best for Lia. It's nice to read nonfiction once in a while...
