Dusty Reads is a Tuesday meme that I found at Ya-aholic.com and was originally started at Xpressoreads.com.
This is a meme where I intend to showcase a book that has been on my shelf for a while and haven’t got to yet. If you have read this or have heard of this book, I would love to hear your comments on whether you like it or not, or have heard great things about it.
This week, my Dusty Read is:
Twelve-year-old Mira comes from a chaotic, artistic and outspoken family where it’s not always easy to be heard. As her beloved Nana Josie's health declines, Mira begins to discover the secrets of those around her, and also starts to keep some of her own. She is drawn to mysterious Jidé, a boy who is clearly hiding a troubled past and has grown hardened layers - like those of an artichoke - around his heart. As Mira is experiencing grief for the first time, she is also discovering the wondrous and often mystical world around her.
