This Summer’s featured Book Reviews!
“As with all of her writing, Roshani Chokshi captivates readers with her elegant prose, intricate plots, and beautiful use of mythology and culture.” (LD Gr.10)
“This book is just too good for words, it is a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish. John Green honestly guides you through the sick main characters life, and her struggle to create serious relationships with others.” (VB Gr.8)
