Listen, Slowly by Thannha Lai was by far one of my favorite books ever! I haven’t finished the ending yet so I won’t give it away 🙂 Even though I have not read the ending yet, it is probably one of the most interesting books that I’ve ever read. The story is about a girl that goes to Vietnam. The author creates a window for the reader to see through. I have never been to Vietnam, but the author makes the image so clear of how it looks, and how the people act there compared to United States citizens. Even though she doesn’t want to go at first, she discovers how special this place can be.
