What a wonderful and fantastic read this book was. I have just finished reading it and I know my outlook for this day has just notched up quite a bit. The feeling that this book has left me with is amazing.
A story of a young girl, Robin, who is 9 years old and how her whole life, her family and those around her changed drastically all in one day during the Apartheid in South Africa. A story that had me laughing, crying, shocked, mortified, and shaking my head a lot. I really grew to love these characters and loved that I got to spend a day and a half with them. Actually, I wanted to spend more time with them, however, the book came to an end. An ending that had me hoping, smiling, fist pumping and definitely crying.
Robin is a character that will not let you go. I am so grateful to Penguin Group/Putnam and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley and the opportunity to read this incredible book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!
