I am so ready for Friday. Let’s get the weekend started with some good ol’ fifteen-word (or fewer) reviews:
2. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Really enjoyed Ari’s voice and the role parents played. Gentler than I expected.
3. Warriors Don’t Cry: The Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock’s Central High by Melba Pattillo Beals
Harrowing story of the Little Rock 9. File under “bravest teens ever.”
4. After the Quake by Haruki Murakami
Like the unsettling vibe in each, but I was expecting something odder overall.
5. One Morning in Maine by Robert McCloskey
A loose tooth and clam chowder? This book reminds me of a cozy fall morning.
