Happy Sock Sunday! Ahhh I’m glad to be back! I haven’t done a Sock Sunday in so long! Anyways, a little update on my reading status, I have already finished reading Turtles All the Way Down by John Green and I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sanchez. The reviews for both of these will be posted soon so please, stay tuned!
This week I will be listening to Give Me Some Truth by Eric Gansworth. This book is 14 hours long so it might take me about a week to listen. I’m on a reading /listening streak so I’m hoping to accomplish my reading goals. I put this book on my reading list because it sound really interesting!
Carson Mastick is entering his senior year of high school and desperate to make his mark, on the reservation and off. A rock band — and winning Battle of the Bands — is his best shot. But things keep getting in the way. Small matters like the lack of an actual band, or his brother getting shot by the racist owner of a local restaurant.
Maggi Bokoni has just moved back to the reservation with her family. She’s dying to stop making the same traditional artwork her family sells to tourists (conceptual stuff is cooler), stop feeling out of place in her new (old) home, and stop being treated like a child. She might like to fall in love for the first time too.
Carson and Maggi — along with their friend Lewis — will navigate loud protests, even louder music, and first love in this stirring novel about coming together in a world defined by difference.
