This is a new series for my blog, wherein I will discuss whatever book or books I’m reading or have just finished that week. Feel free to post in the comments what you’re reading this week, too, or your own thoughts about the books I discuss.
I just started reading Bamboo People by Mitali Perkins. I have not been reading this long enough to even tell you what it is about yet. All I can say is:
- In Bamboo People, she explores conflict in Burma from the perspective of two teen boys.
- I have been interested in Mitali Perkins since I started following her on Twitter almost a year ago. Like me, she has lived in some interesting far away places. Like me, she chooses to write about those far away places.
I look forward to learning more about Burma and Ms. Perkins through this work.
