i‘m late to the party but this book! this book. i had to hug it when i was done reading it.
hope everyone is enjoying their saturday! this book is heartrending and beautiful in the best of ways.
several years ago, depression stole my ability to read. after starting lexapro five weeks ago, i‘m able to read again. the last three days, i‘ve read 15 books. i‘m so glad to be back.
y‘all look what i found at my local indie for $12
returning to this after a long, grueling day at congaree national park.
"But there's a message there for everyone and it is that people can unite, that democracy from below can challenge oligarchy, that imprisoned migrants can be freed, that fascism can be overcome, and that equality is emancipatory."
Maybe my fifth graders will get more out of it? A good story about friendship but misses some opportunities to go deeper. #bookaday
I just finished reading this and WOW. I took so much away from it. Has anyone attempted their own Year of Yes?
Listening to this at the moment. I'm enjoying it so much!
the DRAMA of this book
#andawaytheygo Liberty!! I just did a book purge and my shelves are so empty the books are LEANING. Send me yours. 😁
After finishing this book, I had some conflicting thoughts. It was a really compelling look at the devastating consequences of apartheid, a subject that I knew next to nothing about. However, I had some issues with the actual storytelling.

First read of 2017. Here I am, passing this story along. It's relevance to the current political climate cannot be overstated. I read this for the #readharderchallenge as my book about war, as well as #litsyAtoZ for my letter R.

Loving this book, but procrastinating as I set up my book tracking and challenges for the year. What are you guys participating in? I'm currently doing Litsy A to Z, Read Harder, and the Litsy Reading Challenge. Anything else I should know about?
