My first book is down, refreshingly fast! I picked this one because I felt like I was going to identify strongly with the main character. I was right.
Capsule review: "I have to say, this book hit me where I live. Like Erica, I had a mom
who got breast cancer. (She's fine now.) I also grew up Latina, with
Spanish and English in my ears and Tex-Mex cooking in my home. And of
course, no matter what your ethnicity, everybody can relate to the
agonizing experience of being a middle-schooler."
Since the sun has gone down, the temperature has cooled off to something less than the surface of Mercury, so I'm going to take a walk and cue up my audiobook for a little while before I start my next book.
