Twins Pearl and Stasha are sent to Auschwitz to live in Mengele’s “Zoo.”  This was challenging writing for me.  The imagery and the character’s interior life was hard to follow.  But the story was riveting and I appreciated the ending.

The Wangs Vs. The World

meh.  i just didn’t care about these people and didn’t find their journey or predicament very interesting which surprised me — the outline of the story sounded so interesting.  the only thing i liked about the entire book was how much the father loved his children.  charming.

Golden Girl

Very uneven writing.  Only the most avid swim fan could follow it.  But I persisted to glean insight into the world of competitive swimming and training.  Ugh.
