Year 6, Book 15

15. Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones
Yet another book I picked up as an Advanced Reader’s Copy at ALA Midwinter. This book is written from the perspectives of two sisters whose father is a bigamist married to both their mothers. The first half of the book is told from the point of view of Dana. Unlike Chaurisse and Chaurisse’s mother, Dana and her mother are fully aware of father’s double life. Dana has always felt second to Chaurisse, but has been raised to protect both Chaurisse and her father. The second half of the novel is told from the perspective of Chaurisse as she befriends Dana not knowing about that they are half-sisters. It was a quick read. I finished it in one afternoon. I give it 6 out of 10.
