Tanya … I finished listening to the audiobook of Behold the Dreamers, Imbolo Mbue, narrated by Prentice Onayemi. It was a very realistic depiction of what life is like for an illegal immigrant family. I highly recommend it! Currently reading Caraval, Stephanie Garber. I’m about 2/3rd of the way through and loving it. The main character is a bit annoying with the helpless girl routine – which always annoys me in books – but I’m loving the action and intrigue so far.
