This is not the type of book I usually read. Not a bit of fantasy in it. But my librarian told me I would love it, and my librarian has good taste, so I believed her.
It’s the story of a girl who thinks herself unattractive, paranoid, and delicate. Then her family takes in a little Mexican boy, and this delicate girl has to travel across Mexico to take him home, even though she desperately wants him to stay.
This book was interesting. Not in a good or bad way. As I said, it’s not what I usually read. There were parts of it I thought were very interesting, and others that made me yawn and say “move on!”
If you like stories about an awkward girl turning into a woman, and discovering what it really means to love, then you’ll like this book.
