Remember when you were a kid and getting new crayons was a big deal? Getting new books holds the same kind of magic for some of us big kids. Every week on Sunday, I post what's new in our box. I think crayons is a pretty cool metaphor for multicultural lit. Every week we receive a book is a good week.
This week's goodie:
Our friends at Hatchette sent me Searching for Tina Turner by Jacquline Luckett for review. As many of you know, my plate is full so if you're willing to review this, leave me a comment with your e-mail. You don't have to have a blog. I'll publish the review here. First come, first serve.
On the surface, Lena Spencer appears to have it all... When Randall decides that he's had enough of marriage counseling, he offers his wife an ultimatum: "Be grateful for all I've done for you or leave." Lena, realizing that money can't solve her problems and that her husband is no longer the man she married, decides to choose the latter. Drawing strength from Tina Turner's life story, SEARCHING FOR TINA TURNER is Lena's struggle to find herself after 25 years of being a wife and mother.
What did you get in the mail, the book store or the library this week? Happy reading.
