My youngest absolutely LOVES the text, illustrations, and whimsical tale. He has the tee shirt now to match his own copy of the book and to show his affection for a fun story that emphasizes the importance of trying something new.
Interesting fictional account written from our young protagonist's mind - so hard to decipher at times because of his young age and perspective. Chronicles his painful journey as the son of a traveling European haphazardly adopted on one of his treks. Slave/Master relationship leaves one with great sympathy for young Black boy longing for his home while making the best of changing circumstances.
Our protagonist shares her story of being coming of age and self reflections of racial identity. I laughed and marveled at her ability to keep her life and experiences and personal identity in balance as she navigated international travel experiences between Spain and the U.S. A Worthwhile read.
I havent read this book but I know the series is really good.
Moving story of two Pakistanian women which highlights social inequities faced by women in this Islamic setting. Intriguing, hard to put down suspense kept me wondering what would happen next to Laila and Mariam - our protagonists. A wonderful read that is both informative yet entertaining, heartbreaking and emotionally-charged. A must read for those who enjoy good believable fiction in a novel.
