A book report on Peter Rabbit.

A prize to the first person to comment and tell me where the title comes from. (L'il Sis you're disqualified from this one because I know you know!)

Atonement by Ian McEwan

So I just finished what I would consider to be the best book I have read this summer. It's the tale of a little girl, a horrible crime she commits, and the years it takes that she atones for her sin. The first portion of the book is dedicated to a child's fantasy, a 13 year old growing up just before World War II. The second portion chronicles the war, and the lives of the girl and the people most affected by her crime. This was a wonderful read, full of summer innocence and youth, and the scary passage into adulthood.
