Apparently, I have a new favorite author:
Pam Munoz Ryan.
You guys know how much I enjoyed--no, ADORED--"Echo" a month or so ago? Well, "Becoming Naomi Leon" is every bit as good. And I am one happy reader right now. *blissful sigh*
This book is fantastic, the way it gives a window into a young child's mind and lets you truly SEE everything as it appears to her perspective. You feel like you're ten years old again when you're reading it, honestly. Everything that scares Naomi, scares you; and everything that makes her happy, makes you happy too.
It's such a beautiful story, too, because it's all about a child (Naomi) who suffers from anxiety and confidence issues due to her AWFUL mother's neglectful/abusive treatment of her, and how she eventually finds the strength to overcome those fears and speak up for herself, loud and clear. (view spoiler)[At the very end, in the courtroom scene, where Naomi stands up in front of everyone and basically tells her mother she's had enough, I was internally screaming "YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!" Loved that part so much. Take THAT, Skyla!! (hide spoiler)] She's one brave little girl, is Naomi Leon--"a mouse with a lioness' voice." I want to be like her :-)
Also, can I just say I love Santiago? Like, SO MUCH???? Because I do.
