The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
There have been a few mixed reactions in reviews about the fact that Asha and Carey start with the goal of raising money, and I enjoyed reading your take on that. Have not read it yet but it occurs to me that making money is a subject that is a special focus of teens as they are finally old enough to find jobs to pay for their car insurance, homecoming dances and proms as well as entertainment and clothes.
Teens are also so filled with idealism about social and political causes. This seems like a natural and realistic pairing.
Strict, perhaps a bit over-controlling for a senior, but clearly loving her, wanting the best, and not being abusive. Still, within those guidelines, Asha had freedom.
Around the time I was reading this I read a throwaway comment by an actor? And Asha, as I recall, did. Some teens do.
So that struck a positive cord with me. Why not have a cause and be able to go to London? Follow This Blog:. About Elizabeth Burns Looking for a place to talk about young adult books? Comments Sarah aquafortis says:.source url
