Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson is set in Kenya but is the story of refugees from the Congo. The book is at times slow and wraps up too neatly at the end. However, the main character of teenager Tina or Tiny Girl gives this book a young adult feel and creates a character you can cheer for. A promising debut novel.
