Ryan Murphy, Down with the Ship

Ashley Capps, God Bless Our Crop-dusted Wedding Cake

Were also suggested to me.

If anyone wants to send me any of these books, I'd be happy to get them. But I don't think I'll be able to afford more books until after December, as my money is going to all things Dora this year. And an ant farm.
