Catching Fireflies (The Sweet Magnolias) by Sherryl Woods

5 STARS This is the first Sweet Magnolias book that I have read. Wow what a hard and important subject to cover. Their was some information I did not realize. I could have done better at parenting. I like how the members of Sweet Magnolias are thier for each other. But I don't like the message that to be thier you have to drink. Laura Reed is worried about one of her students is missing only her class. She knows that Misty knows her subject and thats not why she is sluffing. Laura warns after trying to get Misty to tell her that if she is not thier monday she will have to go to the princable about it. Misty is a junior and is being bullied at school and on the internet by one of the cheerleaders. Telling lies about her and name calling. Misty is afraid of her parents thinking its true. Plus her mom is in a depression over her father wanting a divorce. Misty makes her friend promise not to tell her mom and stepfather or thier teacher the problems. Misty gets the idea to go to her doctor and ask for a note excusing her from school period. Dr. J.C. Fullerton tries to understand why Misty does not want to go to school. When she won't tell he tells her okay but you have to talk to another adult about it and have them call him by certain time or he would go talk to her parents. J.C. is single and does not date. He is always telling his nurse that to stop trying to fix him up. JC and Laura try and figure out how to find out what is going on with Misty. They team up for Misty and start dating. The whole school and town start taking sides. Lots of good information is brought up about bulling. This novel was rivoting and I cant wait to read more about the Sweet Magnolias. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. Harlequin MIRA (July 31, 2012)PUB 384 pages
