it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult
Read in June, 2009

One of my favorite books for young adults is Bronx Masquerade, by Nikki Grimes. I credit Grimes to some extent for the poetry workshops and poetry slam work I’ve done at my school. So I was excited to pick up another of her books, since she usually writes picture books.

The Road to Paris is a gently told and pleasantly positive story. Paris is a foster kid who is separated from her brother and set to live with the Lincolns. The story moves fast but steady as the seasons. I loved the prose, and Paris made for a wonderful character.
