All Over but the Shoutin‘ is one of my favorite books. I read it just about every year.
(Now that I think about it, she introduced me to many of my favorite books. I need to take her out to lunch one day to say thanks.)
Rick Bragg is a natural born storyteller.
He has a way of finding the light in the darkest of stories, but he’s also not a liar, which is refreshing.
This book is a biography that focuses on his mom’s sacrifices to provide the best life possible for himself and his brothers, Sam and Mark.
This is the first book that made me cry. I was sitting in math class and I couldn’t stop the tears.
If you enjoy biographies, I highly recommend this book.
