Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Lula, a young immigrant from Albania, navigates life in the US in the post-9/11 Bush years. This book is entertaining, the comic moments—and there are many—are satirical. I just wish the characters and the situations hadn’t seemed stereotypes. But, maybe that’s how it is when every situation is fraught with all kinds of nuance a person new to living here sees differently than those who have been here all their lives.
