I just reread one of my favorite books for the first time in 18 years….. and I have thoughts..
Megan Meade’s Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian…….. When I was in middle school, I reread this book over and over on trips. There are quite a few reasons why I did which will be discussed but there are reasons why it had been awhile since I reread it.

These are as follows, hope you enjoy please comment if you want to see more of these or if you want to join the discussion of this book.
