Surrounded by Books

I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).

When the Stars Go Blue

When the Stars Go Blue - Caridad Ferrer I'm a sucker for well written YA, and good adaptations of classical stories, also a sucker for dance narrative.This does a terrific job of hitting my sweet spot, with a strong, authentic narrator staying true to her Hispanic heritage... and setting the stage for a reinterpretation of Carmen that builds out into character development and obsession/passion along interesting lines.A fun, fast read.
