    I agree. Still, I loved Hedwig. Such a wonderful owl...

    Hi there!

    I am honestly stumped by this question.
    Initially I was going to be a smart ass and reply with something to the effect of "Whatever book actually forced me to sit still."
    But after exploring my memory - I honestly don't have an answer - not right now anyway.

    Do you feel that the moment that occurred, that is the book's story compelling you to cry, was a milestone of emotional growth/human development for you?
    Or is your interest in knowing more simply rooted in something along the lines of "personal trivia?"

    The reason I ask is that I remember at age 12 I had developed what I now know as "empathy" and began to understand how simply "caring" for someone could ultimately lead to me experiencing the feelings of whatever sadness plagued their lives at that time. That was a big realization for me. However, I cannot associate with any reading I was doing at that time.

    Cheers,

    It was more along the lines of emotional development, yes. I'm interested how outside influences can effect this, particularly reading. I'm an English teacher (obviously), and I am a firm believer that reading makes you a better person By reading, I think we gain an understanding of others that we couldn't have otherwise. I work with so many kids who have NEVER read a book in completion before-- and I think that it shows in how they treat others around them. I'm interested in this interaction between literature and how we connect with the world.

    I don't think I've ever cried over a book. Some have made come very close. Among those:

    Harry Potter- the one where Dobby dies
    My Sister's Keeper
    The Kite Runner
    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
    Diary of Anne Frank

    I'm pretty sure it was one I was forced to read for a book report.

    "The Martian Chronicles" by Ray Bradbury. I don't remember how old I was -- maybe 8 or 9? -- but my mom was reading it to me. I started sobbing at the end of "The Earth Men".

    The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Actually I think there was one or two before that, but I don't remember what they were.
