Birdie and Daniel are absolutely adorable and I enjoyed reading their story. *SWOON ALERT*
I really enjoyed this book! The modern retelling of a classic book from a Mexican American family in the Trump era was a story line I did not see coming!

So, I wasn't be able to go to my local Friends of the Library sale last month (and I am SUPER bummed), but I did pick up these new reads in the last month from the Barnes & Noble #BookHaul and from Book of the Month Club and I'm very excited to get through my books on deck to get to these! There are also a few ARCs I'll be reading and reviewing this month too.
