I’ve finished this book and really enjoyed it – it’s about a young indigenous girl who wants to go to a residential school to learn how to read. Little does she know many hardships wait there. There are illustrations and definitions throughout the book, which I thought was helpful and they added to the experience. I’ve written the full book review here and I’ll be posting it on this blog in the summer (I’m still catching up on all the books I’ve read and reviewed in 2021, so it’s scheduled a ways out.)
I’m about half way through this story and I admit it’s one of those books that is good overall, but I’m not super connected with the characters. I do want to see what happens and I have a feeling it’ll get better toward the end. It goes to show how important it is to have a cool book cover – the design really encouraged me to buy it, because it looks edgy and interesting. I’ll be posting the full review soon after Fatty Legs in the summer. 🙂
So, there we have it! I’m sticking to the 1-2 books per month quota I’ve set for myself. I’ve got two books already lined up to read for next month and I look forward to discovering some new stories in due time.
