Sometimes I get book recommendations in unexpected ways. I never used to catch the NPR book reviews, but now, every once in awhile, I'm in the car when they're on. Several books have grabbed my attention. I can't read them all, but there are a few that stick in my brain and even though they aren't my usual fare I feel compelled to read them.
The first book that NPR introduced me to (one I never would have picked up otherwise) was Cristina Garcia's The Lady Matador's Hotel. I loved the writing. And now, the author has a new release coming out in July. It's YA, and it sounds fantastic.
Here's the publisher's blurb for Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia:
|Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing|
Like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this story takes readers on a journey into the lives of very different girls and the bonds that keep them friends.
