Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The main plot line of We Never Asked for Wings is Mexican immigration into the United States - both legal and illegal. Issues that work out too neatly and many sub-plots make this story difficult to engage with, but the writing creates some engaging characters and a wonderfully visualized setting. I didn't love this one, but I look forward to Vanessa Diffenbaugh's next book.
