Summer Reading Club review

Title/Author The Invention of Wings/Sue Monk Kidd

Set in Charleston in the 1800’s, the book follows the story of a slave and her owner from the time they were were young girls into adulthood. The author explores themes such as hardship, friendship, and self-discovery. I enjoyed how the story was told from the point of view of the 2 main characters in alternating chapters.

Title/Author
The Color of Water
This was a great book. An African American male tells his story growing up with a Jewish mother who hid her cultural background from her children. It shows the confusion of self-identity and the different cultures experienced.
