It’s bingo Saturday once again – that rolled around fast! The square I’ve filled for this entry is:
A book written by someone under 30
The book in question is of course P is for Pearl, by the incredibly talented – and young – Eliza Henry Jones. Eliza initially wrote this novel when she was 16 and then she tucked it away until recently. She’s still under 30, but I almost feel like she gets a double qualification for this square. To have envisaged and written such an incredibly deep novel at the age of 16 is truly impressive.
There’s just so much about this novel that I loved. It’s a novel that makes you really appreciate the importance of being straight with children when it comes to the ugly truth about loved ones. The impulse to protect is strong but the implications of not being transparent can be far reaching.
I reviewed this novel a week ago, but if you missed it, or just want to read it again, you can do so here.
This year I’m playing book bingo with Mrs B’s Book Reviews. On the first and third Saturday of each month, we’ll post our latest entry. We’re not telling each other in advance what we’re currently reading or what square we’ll be filling next; any coincidences are exactly that – and just add to the fun!
Follow our card below if you’d like to join in, and please let us know if you do so we can check out what you’re reading.
Now I’m off to check out what square Mrs B has marked off for this round. See you over there!
