At the airport, I impulsively bought True Grit. The description in the back and the first paragraph totally caught my attention. I love reading books with a strong female lead. Mattie is a fourteen year old girl and the main character of the book. She retells her story of how she sought to avenge her father's untimely and unnecessary death. Mattie's narrative voice is full of spunk and determination. At times, she sounds childish. At times, her insights are so profound. It's an easy read. Good for any plane ride or day at the beach.
