Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

lefaquin’s #CBR4 Review #19: Secret Son by Laila Lalami

  This is the story of Youssef, a young man from the slums of Casablanca, which Lalami tells while weaving commentary on the political and social status of Morocco into the narrative. Class mobility is key here, and the difficulty of doing so in Morocco. Aside from excellent political and socioeconomic commentary, Secret Son is a thought provoking and enjoyable novel to read – check out my review on my blog!
