This was OK. I didn't read the back or anything, so wasn't quite sure what I was getting into. Basically, earth got jacked and a bunch of scientists managed to escape and now their children are exploring poly relationships and not. I mean, I like the thought that eventually all genders and preferences will be just accepted, so that was cool. 🤷‍♀️

High school senior Emoni Santiago has a lot on her plate literally and figuratively. She‘s trying to sort out #college and motherhood and her relationship with her mercurial father, and she‘s also butting heads with her culinary arts teacher and figuring out her feelings about the cute new guy in class.

So cute! The tooth fairy and el Ratón Pérez are from two different cultures, but work together to retrieve Miguelito‘s baby tooth and leave him a note and coins. #bbrc #A2Z:T

3.5 ⭐️ This GN is odd, but in an intriguing way. This is a story about relationships and the first generation that has set new rules and moral code to live by. As should be open and free. Our main character Rigo wants to cohabitate with her beau, but they are a very free society and she feels old fashioned. She doesn't want to be monogamous, but in an open relationship. As I said I‘m intrigued, and want to see how the story progresses.

A wondrous read - a fictional biography of Dominican Republic, New Jersey immigrant, Oscar Wao and his most recent antecedents.
Lots of fantasy, sci-fi, comic book etc. references as Oscar is very geeky!
About the transfer of violence from rulers to the ruled, with some magical realist themes.
Very innovative!

I think this is like #5 out of 21. Will try to finish all of Mario Vargas Llosa's 21 novels both in English and Spanish by the end of this year... #bookgoals #Spanglish
