Christine | 3 comments I recently read a large number of books all at once. One involved a young girl growing up in a drought-ridden village who adores her brother who leaves for the city. She follows and stays with a woman originally from the village and cares for her son while waiting and then looking for her brother. She meets a young man who takes pictures of people and dresses and places the photos in settings the subjects dream of. She encounters the dangers and differences of ghetto living and the class differences in the city.

Liralen | 708 comments Sounds interesting. A few questions for more info, if you remember:

How recent is 'recently'?
What was the target age range? Adult? YA?
Where was the book set?

Christine | 3 comments I read it in March but have no idea when the book was published. It is an adult read. Interestingly, we are never told where the story occurs. It feels like it could be in South America, but the author leaves that to your imagination.
