I loved this one. A very honest, brutal story of a suffering family.
So many good #letterl books to choose from but I went with my MG favorite of 2021!
Runners up: The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles, The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and The Last Cuentista by Donna Barba Higuera
I really enjoyed this book, I do like Lucy a lot. It was easy to read and short. This is only the second book from the Booker Prize I have read. Not reading the whole list only what I can get my hands on from the library.

Seventh grader, Jane Brannen, wants nothing more than to become a famous author like Jane Austen — she just needs to figure out the key to literary success!
This was a cute, little middle-grade story that I would recommend to any young reader.
I sliced my right thumb with a very sharp knife- all taken care of; steri stripped, etc. I cannot get it wet. Not a drop.
It‘s a challenge! I am grateful for my family who are picking up the slack.
This book. I adore it.
I really enjoyed this book. It opens with Maya, the third wife, walking in front of a bus and dying. Was it an accident or intentional? What is really going on with this family? And the rest of the book explores those questions. We meet the two ex-wives and the five kids. We flashback to when Maya was alive. Great ending!
