I’d never read anything by Sherman Alexie before. The book was funny, heart-wrenching, and at times, shocking. Only a Native American could write such an honest piece with any authenticity, and I am forever grateful for the recommendation.
I think the topic of race is a very salient one at this moment in history. And, I think this book does an excellent job showing where we have been, and where we should be going.
Rich romantic chemistry and intriguing family drama combine in this contemporary YA romance novel. With a main character who can’t go outside because she’s bound to get sick, and a charming love interest who won’t walk away, you’ll keep turning the pages on this one. Oh, and your teenager will to!
