Rory’s Book Club: Rescuing Patty Hearst

My name is Sara & I don’t always read book jackets. This was the case of “Rescuing Patty Hearst: Memories from a Decade Gone Mad” One of the subtitles is also Growing Up Sane in a Decade Gone Mad.

I picked up the book, read the first page, closed the book & thought “Crap, that’s really good”. The entire book was on the same level. Then I finished reading it, looked at the book jacket again & saw that it was written by Virginia Holman. I thought “The girl’s name in the story is Virginia, could it be?” I finally put together that it was a memoir. In fact it’s one of the best memoirs I’ve ever read. It reads like a novel, serves me right for not reading the book jacket.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    Ms. Rory,
    Good afternoon Ma’am. I am applying to college and one of the essay topics is choose your own book for the Freshman Book Program. Do you think this is of an appropriate level or will I look foolish suggesting it? Thank you so much, have a great day!

    Very respectfully,
    Alecia Drenckhahn
