Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read
My answer to this week's Follow Friday question:
Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).
I had a really hard time adjusting to college. I didn't know anyone at the college I went to or even in the town. I didn't know my way around and I felt lost and alone. I've always been really close to my family and it was hard being 3 hours away. I didn't have a roommate so I was by myself most of the time. That first week during orientation before school began I remember reading Danger in the Shadows by Dee Henderson. Getting lost in this novel helped to curb those lonely feelings and got me through the first week until I met the most amazing people who are still my best friends after 8 years.
