Sit by Deborah Ellis

SitSit is a very unique book.  It's a series of eleven mostly unrelated short stories that all start with the main character sitting on a chair, bench, fence, even a toilet!  The stories aren't really about sitting, but they are about thinking.  Each story has a situation where some pretty deep thinking needs to be done.  The characters are faced with something that has happened or is happening in their lives, like the separation of parents, injustice in government, unfair treatment, and even the Holocaust.  Does this book sound deep and thought provoking?  You bet it is!

When I picked up Sit I really didn't know what to expect.  It was on the new book shelf and it looked different and interesting.  It's a short book, and a pretty fast read, but it really packs a punch!  The central message of Sit is to take a few minutes to think about a way to find the courage to change something in your life or in the life of someone else.  Its very inspirational, and hopefully makes the reader think about his or her own life.  It really got me thinking too.
