Remembering Raquel-- Vivian Van Velde

Raquel was never very popular, that is, until the day she died.

Huh? How can you not want to read a book that starts out like that? ;-)

This was a very interesting novella (it’s short). I only took me a couple hours to read and that was during school, so less than that if I had read it straight through. It’s about how people react to this girl’s death. She’s overweight, unpopular, and plays online fantasy games, and everyone has a different reaction to her death.

Not only does this teach you a great lesson about “popularity” it also leaves you with questions: “How would people remember me?” “Is there someone I should be noticing more?” “How would I feel if so-and-so died?”

It was fascinating.
