“You can learn anything when you have to learn it. You could learn to fly if it meant you would live another day.” -Maame
It’s been more than a minute since I shared a book review I know… Apologies. School took over and my New Years resolution of reading one book per month didn’t really work out like I thought it would. BUT here I am, review in hand just in time for some summer reading!
First book review of the year and it’s actually in January and not three months into the year… Yay! Started 2016 on a good, strong writing note, love it.
