August’s Book: Never Broken

Spirit.From being raised in Alaska and Hawaii to being homeless in San Diego to moving to Texas, Jewel has many a story to tell. In the past, PD hasn’t been the best at recommending beach reads. Yes, yes---we’ll never live down recommending Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity Is Near, but this month we stand by our pick.

Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story by Jewel Kilcher is part memoir, part travel guide, part action drama, part philosophy, part instruction manual, part comedy, part self-help, part sci-fi, part Economics 101, part art appreciation and a 100% embracement of freedom.

You might be thinking, “Oh great. Famine and plague are in the title, another uplifting pick from the PD Book Club,” but give us some credit, it isn’t nearly as depressing as it sounds.
