Picked this book off #MountTBR for the #DiverseMiddleGrade category of #Booked2019. It‘s a quick story about three sister and their month spent in Oakland with their unlikable mother and the Black Panthers (even though they really just wanted to go to Disneyland).

Book 2 of #24b4Monday ✔️
Time: 10h28m

I‘m not the intended audience for this one but it managed to fulfill both the #DiverseMiddleGrade prompt for #Booked2019 AND #Malawi for the #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge- plus it was available through #KindleUnlimited! I liked the details of daily life in Malawi, there wasn‘t enough there to overcome the more problematic parts of the plot. I expected the heavy-handed Sunday school lessons, but everything with the father made me uncomfortable

Cinfhen Sorry it wasn‘t a total pick but at least you got a #doubledip 2w
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen indeed!! 😁 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job, even if was just so-so. ♥️📚👊🏻 2w

Middle-grade about a bright young girl in Pakistan who is attempting to get an education and go to college but due to unpaid debts her life veers off course and she must figure out a way to overcome these circumstances. Good introduction to the obstacles many around the world and particularly girls face in obtaining even a basic education. #booked2019 #diversemiddlegrade

My companion during #schoolpickup this week. A beautifully written and touching story of compassion, understanding, acceptance and the uplifting and supportive power of friendship. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2019 #Booked2019Summer #diversemiddlegrade

4thhouseontheleft Great pick! I've read some of her books, but not this one yet. Would you recommend the audio version? 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ve seen glowing reviews for this book 1mo
throwmeabook @4thhouseontheleft the audio is full cast - not sure if I like that. I would have liked to have had the book to go back and reread some passages/lines that touched me. 1mo
