How do we measure up to our parents' expectations? Does everybody deserve a day off? What's the toughest part of being a homeschooled kid? Our group of readers from the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Library in Broomfield, Colorado weigh in on these questions and more as they discuss Lisa Graff's novel "Absolutely Almost." Lisa talks about where the characters came from and how she wrote her first book for her newborn baby brother. NYC actor Thaddeus Fitzpatrick is celebrity reader. Kitty Felde is host.
