Riveting book about an inner city elementary school
I love a good community-focused novel, and SCARBOROUGH is IT. Catherine Hernandez explores the challenges a group of young children, their parents, and their literacy group coordinator face throughout the 2011/12 school year. It‘s powerful, affecting, relatable stuff, and while it hasn‘t quite taken over the top spot in my Canada Reads ranking, I won‘t be at all upset if it wins. It‘ll stick with me for a long time.
