I recently read the book Gracianna by Trini Amador.
This is a hard review to write because honestly I loved the story, but wasn’t a huge fan of the writing style. The book tells the story of Gracianna, a young girl from the Basque region, who had a dream to go to America. She travels to Paris to find a job to earn money to travel. While there WWII breaks out finding Gracianna thrown into a situation that leads her to make some hard decisions.
I found a trailer for the book that explains the whole story.
As always, I loved the historical aspect of the book. I loved the story….the writing style was just like someone narrating the story. I typically get very involved in books feeling like I am the main character..not with this one. It lacked emotion. I do love holocaust stories and triumph over tragedy stories so that appealed to me.
All in all I would give the book a strong 3 rating out of five. The story was so good…the writing style, just not my favorite.
