Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
Cut Me Free by J. R. Johansson

So, so dark and disturbing as it explores a first-person experience of a teenager abused for most of her life and the steps she is willing to take to prevent that from happening to others. I liked it a lot but promptly forgot it.

 

The Jaguar's Children by John Vaillant

An extremely powerful novel and one that is ripped from the headlines as it explores a Mexican teen trying to sneak into the United States but finds himself trapped in a water tanker. There are no words to do this one justice.

 

A Memory of Violets by Hazel Gaynor

A beautiful novel about love, loss, and perseverance; the ending is a bit too fairy tale-esque for my taste, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the story.
