The Princess in Black Takes a Vacation – The story is about how the Princess can’t relax on her vacation because her monster alarm keeps ringing. I can relate to it because I dream and think about work/school all the time!!
A Long Walk to Water – I like Linda Sue Park’s writing and this story was good because it’s about a part of history that is not familiar to me. It’s set in Sudan and intertwines two characters, Salva in the 1990s and Nya in 2008. All the hardships that they endured just to get to the next day is astounding. 😦 I’d like to read more survival stories.
The Color of Water – This is the second book in a trilogy. It’s about a young girl, Ehwa, growing into a young woman. In this book, she develops a crush and learns more about her body. I relate to it and I wonder how a man would feel reading this story.
California Dreaming – I read this book because I listen to Cass Elliot! I thought it was so cool that there was a graphic novel about her life. However, it is very sad too 😦 The ending! She had a hard life and the relationships within The Mamas and the Papas sound so messy and painful. 😦 Which makes the happy music they produce kind of forlorn now.
