The River Why by David James Duncan
There are five books that I could choose for this recognition, each for various reasons relating to my professional, spiritual, or personal development. I chose "The River Why" because a couple of decades ago when I was transitioning into the "real" adult world, I read this book and related to the struggles and adventures of the main character, Gus. This book has special meaning to me because it relates to my overall growth into adulthood.
