a daydreamer's thoughts: Desert Rice by Angela Scott (+ Giveaway)
Overall, this book was a completely stunning read. It kept me captivated and forced me to simply carry on reading. I found it incredibly difficult to stop as I just simply had to know what was going to happen. It was brilliantly written with interesting scenes and a clever writing style. It is a book that I would easily be able to read again but probably not straight away. The message and themes in the book are hard-hitting and heavy and this isn't a light, fluffy read by any means. If you’re looking for something with a bit of humor and some lighthearted romance, steer clear of this book, but if you’re looking for something a bit darker, more realistic, and one that holds an incredibly powerful punch, then this is definitely a book that I would recommend. This book tells the tale of a twelve year old and a fifteen year old who are alone in the world and just want to be able to stay together. It is full of twists and turns and moments that will cause you to rethink the world you live in. A marvelous read.
