Feels good to return with a book review
I just read The Silver Star by Jeanette Walls and loved it. It’s the story of two sisters (around 11 and 14) trying to make their way alone when their mother basically abandons them. They are great little heroines, funny and brave and admirable. Of course they encounter some villains, but the book stands resoundingly on the side of good…the idea that most people will help when they can.
One of my favorite books of the year so far. (Also, if you haven’t read her memoir, The Glass Castle, I highly recommend it as well.)
