Salvage the Bones

If you only read one book this summer, make it Jesmyn Ward´s “Salvage the Bones”! What a gripping, heart-breaking novel! I loved it from the very first sentence and didn´t want to go to bed before finding out what happens to the characters. It´s set in the New Orleans area in the wake of the Katrina hurricane and it depicts the life of African American teenage siblings, their poverty ridden days due to their alcoholic father who stills mourns their long-dead mother. It´s a book on friendship, forgiveness and family values. It´s a book on redemption and love. You HAVE TO read it! And have some prosecco while you´re at it!;-)
