So. My nook was taken away so I cannot chat like I used to. I tried to find the chatting room on the pc but could not. Can someone give me the exact title and author please and tell Nightcloud and Dawnfeather to read this please? I have a feeling that I may not have the nook back for a long time so I am stuck posting from the laptop whenever I am on and connected to the Internet....which is not as often. Anyways. I really need to chat, That clan has saved me from many bad feelings, Going to it after an argument with my parents really helped calm me down. And with DocPhantom loving Nightcloud and Sparx loving Dawnfeather, my moods greatly bettered and I felt normal for once. My parents seclude me and this was the only social life I was able to have... So please either tell me the location, or if it not on the pc list, then can I make a new one please? I especially want Nightcloud and Dawnfeather to join it. I am sorry for this concurrence and was greatly depressed by it myself.

I read the Great Gatsby a few years ago and it is truly a wonderful book. It shows you how love can make a person do a great deal of work for the person that they truly care for. I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read suspence/love stories.
