I like interesting and unique book titles that spark an image or idea in my head, and "Freedom Dreamers" certainly had me curious. I am still reading the story, and enjoying it with every page. The story's characters are very intriguing, and I do so love relatable, layered characters. I am very interested in the time period and setting of the novel too, as I often had wished to live through the cultural revolution of the 1960s. I think readers of any age or background into this engaging story.

I could have binged through this book in a single sitting, but I found myself reading slowly so that I could savor instead. Beautiful coming of age story.

She has edited and written for numerous print and online publications, and her short story "Sad Little Indie Film" won first prize in the Atlanta Writers Club Fall 2014 contest. Her first novel, "The Freedom Dreamers," will be released May ...more
