Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife by Sam Savage and Michael Mikolowski

This was a very quirky novel about a hopelessly romantic rat (yes, the animal, not a human with personality issues) living in a bookstore, who learns to read by ingesting pages. After he is almost killed by the bookstore owner after trying to communicate via sign language he is taken in by a kindly, drunken sci-fi author. This has been a big hit with a couple of people on the committee. I plan on giving this to a friend to see what she thinks since this seems to be right down her alley.

On a personal note: If you ever need a hairdresser recommendation I have a ton of them. I had sent out a quick email asking for hairdressers and got replies from everyone about their wonderful stylist. I am going start testing them tonight.
