I am so sad this show is over. But I was happy to see the LA institute in the season finale and those characters! I wanted to scream when they came on lol. It would have been great to see the story continue on with these actors.

Anyone else watch this?

Shley9225 No, I haven‘t watched this. Is it like the books? 2w
That-Bookish-Hiker @Shley9225 I think it‘s 50/50. They changed a lot but the heart of the series is in it. It just so awesome to see that world come alive. 2w

I love this movie and have been meaning to read the book since I found out about it. I loved the story as much as the movie. I now can see how much they changed the book in the movie but I think both are still really great.

This edition is awesome with its illustrations!

Daniela Vargas has been trained since she was 12 at the Medio School for girls to be the best Primera wife even though her pedigree is a lie. She is just trying to live the life her parents fought for her to have.

This was a great story featuring a Latinx heroine who felt real to me and I really enjoyed the story. The story and the characters felt authentic. And the ending! Gah! I need book 2 now.

“When fascism comes to America, it will be draped in the flag.”

I don‘t even know what to say about this book that will do it justice. Its dark and not a subject people want to face when they try to escape in the world of books. It was hard for me to read through some scenes but I‘m glad I read it.

Read this book now!

Tamra This American Life most recent episode had a story at the end that is relevant to your post. Small southern town was all pro Trump immigration crackdown until raids hit and then they watched ordinary people and families they knew destroyed. I have to work hard at being generous in the face of ignorance. 1mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @tamra I‘ll have to watch that show! That reminds me of that Aeromexico commercial where they went to Pro Trump towns and gave them a Ancestry test then asked if they would ever visit Mexico. They all said no and then their test result were reveled and all of them had Mexican dna. However much their percentage was they got a discount on their plane tickets. It‘s was pretty funny to see their faces when they found out they had some Mexican dna. 1mo

This book is soooo good but it hurts my stomach because the reality of it is daunting. While readingI keep asking myself “would I speak up if this was happening?”

Right now immigrant children from Central America are in cages like the characters in this book. They are being round up with their parents and being separated by ICE.

What can we do to stop this from happening?

#thoughtswhilereading

Slajaunie It has been happening for many years. We just didn't know it before. 1mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @slajaunie that is so true. I had no idea they were separating the kids for their parents and keeping them in cages. I knew whenever they rounded up Mexican immigrants it wasn‘t good but I‘ve always been naive. My dad immigrated here from Mexico and I can‘t imagine the things he went through to get here and stay here. 1mo

I don‘t know how to write a review for this book.

While the author wrote it in reverse chronological format which I found to be interesting and refreshing it didn‘t help me to understand Jules. She was so good at being a fraud that as a reader I still have no idea who she is. I wish we would have gotten some real enough info about her after what really happened to her parents but you never find out.

Quick and enjoyable read.

Hey Littens! For the new job I have to go for training in a couple of weeks. This is being held in Kansas City, MO. I‘ll have to be there for three weeks! 😱

So I‘m asking for help. Are that any littens on here who live in the area and would like to meet up on a weekend? Where are the must see places? I already have the library on my list to visit. Thank you for your help!

pdever Kemper art museum is a nice little contemporary art museum and the Nelson Atkins is a good gigantic museum ... Both are worth the visit. Nice sculpture garden around the Nelson Atkins and a park across the way. I am in St. Louis, but love Kansas City. Hope you have fun! 1mo
ravenlee I didn‘t make it to the WWI Museum and Memorial when I was there, but we didn‘t know about it until we got to town and then didn‘t have the time to do it justice. If I could go back this would be my number one destination. 1mo
