Just finished the novel, Ghana Must Go, Taiye Salasi a beautifully written story about a Ghanian family who immigrates to America. Highly recommend.
Working on a review of Rachel Adams' new book, Raising Henry: A Memoir of Motherhood, Disability, and Discovery. Lovely story from a Columbia Professor who has a son with Down syndrome and brings her academic training to bear upon her personal experience.
And I'm chipping away at Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom is Wrong and What You Really Need to Know by Emily Oster. If you are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant, you have to read this book. It's fabulous and exactly what I wish I had when I was in the childbearing years...
And last night I started Wonder by RJ Palacios. Looking forward to a fascinating novel about a boy named August with a significant facial deformity and a compelling narrative voice.
