I likhet med Peppe och Jessi har också jag läst Tell the Wolves I'm Home av Carol Rifka Brunt (tack för tipset!)
Bra bok. Jag gillade språket och vissa citat mer än hela berättelsen i sig -boken var verkligen utmärkt skriven och berättelsen var mångbottnad, spännande och vackert sorglig. Det enda jag saknade var en viss fart i intrigen. Fast jag kanske bara var lite rastlös när jag läste. Så. Jag rekommenderar den absolut.
Funderingar som den här fick mig att gilla boken extramycket (det är den 14-åriga June som berättar)
"I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn't like doing. It seemed like life was a sort of narrowing tunnel. Right when you were born, the tunnel was huge. You could be anything. Then, like, the absolute second after you were born, the tunnel narrowed down to about half the size. You were a boy, and already it was certain you wouldn't be a mother and it was likely you wouldn't become a manicurist or a kindergarten teacher. Then you started to grow up and everything you did closed the tunnel in some more (...) Like that. On and on through the years until you were stuck. You'd become a baker or a librarian or a bartender. Or an accountant. And there you were. I figured that on the day you died, the tunnel would be so narrow, you'd have squeezed yourself in with so many choices, that you just got squashed."
