Nancy's Notes - October 13, 2016

“Sully” by Chelsey B. Sullenberger III, "Everything is possible” by Jen Bricker, “Curious Minds” by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton.

     A couple of weeks ago I went with some friends to the movie, “Sully”. I thought it was very good. We have now purchased the book which also has the same title. The biography was not meant to be a  “thriller”. It revolved around accusations made by the National Transportation and Safety Board against the pilot. Immediately after the emergency landing, they believed that he could have flown his plane and landed safely at LaGuardia Airport instead of the Hudson River. It also showed the emotional toll the incident took on his personal and professional life.
        When you think life has dealt you a bad hand, you need to come check out, “Everything is possible”. Jen Bricker was born without legs. Shocked biological parents were unsure they could care for her and decided to give her up for adoption. In her adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: "Never say 'can't.'" Soon there was nothing this small but mighty young girl  couldn't conquer: roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk ribbons thirty feet in the air.
        It seems many of the popular writers now have people writing with them. The latest is Janet Evanovich, whose new book, “Curious Minds”, is written with Phoef Sutton. Emerson Knight is eccentric who has no sense of social etiquette. If he wasn’t brilliant, rich, and   handsome, he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight. What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country.
