This chapter book follows the story of Crow, a 12-year-old girl, with a mysterious background. A man found her washed ashore on one of the Elizabeth Islands when she was an infant.

So far, I‘m doing pretty good for #20in4 and will most likely manage to get to 20 hours🥰 this Book (not tagged)- „the cats of Shinjuku“ is so far very good! I just love the atmosphere in japanese books, nothing much needs to happen, it‘s still mesmerizing ♥️ I‘m looking foward to how the story will develope though!

Not sure why his books don‘t get translated to english that much, but I‘ve read two others and absolutely loved them, so I have high expectations for this one as well! Starting it now for #20in4

Starting this month‘s book club pick…the prompt for this month was a book set in a time or place you were unfamiliar with. I chose this one, as it‘s inspired by the true story of a Louisiana leprosy hospital in the 1920s. Hoping it‘s good!

Simple but powerful. Less fluffy than I imagined. An eloquent argument for the value of human life, against the fundamental injustice that is incarceration in any setting, for the need for society to move past the fear and prejudice that has caused forced segregation and sterilization of communities in the past. It's the reality inspiring fiction that is the most tragic. The Author's Note is illuminating.
Warning for suicidal ideation.
