A Few Recent Reads



And Then There Were Four by Nancy Werlin

This is one of a list of books that I asked my school library to add to the collection. 
The writing?

Was the plot realistic?

Did I want to know what happened?

Jazz Owls by Margarita Engle

I'm glad the book exists, because I had never heard of the Zoot Suit Riots before.

Which should really be called the Sailor Riot

But that part of the book was so short that the book is mislabeled as being about the riot, when it's really just about the travails of a Mexican family in 1940s California.

Margarita Engle has become hit or miss for me. This one was mostly a miss, as I just couldn't get into it.
