Item #3: Books Part 2

I recently started going to the library again. The first book I got to read, “Still Life With June” by Someone, featured a supporting character named June who had Down’s Syndrome and was in an institution. Good book. Annoying clever ending. Anyway.

The second book I chose, “Last Orders” by Graham Swift, also features a supporting character named June who is in an institution because, at the age of 27, she has the brain of a two-year-old.

Both characters were born in June and that’s why they were named June.

(When I was 13 or 14, any book I picked out of the young adult section at the library was about the Haulocaust. Some were obvious, like Anne Frank, but sometimes I’g get home and start reading and be “Oh shoot, not another one”.)
