Mary On A Half Shell


Hi everyone. My name is Kelly and I'm soon-to-be 18. I was raised Lutheran (that's going to be changed, however...) but I've had an affinity for Mary for years now. I just adore her...My room speaks for itself, LOTS of Mary kitsch (I'm dying to get a throw blanket with Our Lady of Guadalupe on it). I'm very excited to have found this community and discover the other Mary Freaks out there ;)

I wanted to ask if anyone has read "Looking for Mary, or the Blessed Virgin and Me" by Beverly D'onofrio. It really is a great book, I've read probably five times now. It's by the same woman the movie "Riding in Cars with Boys" is based on.

I look forward to posting with you all...

I was just going to suggest that you read Looking for Mary! I loved that book. The honesty of it was very moving.

I read Riding in Cars with Boys after I read that, so I didn't enjoy it very much--I knew all the stuff she wasn't saying and/or wasn't being honest about, so I didn't find her as sympathetic as I would have otherwise.

I actually picked it up the other day mainly for the Mary cover. I'm glad people here have enjoyed it! (I have yet to read it, though.)
