Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PAm_WMS
This book is about a fifteen year-old girl named Doris.
Her parents are musicians who perform late at night at
parties and club, so she is used to being home alone.
However, when her mother leaves her and her father, her
father finds a new girlfriend. An incident occurs when a
violent classmate attacks her best friend. Doris is even
more alone, so she seeks company with the pigeons on the
roof of the apartment building she lives in. Doris finds
what her full potential is and who she really is.
I personally thought the book was very slow paced and
confusing at times. It had an interesting plot,but it
was somewhat slow moving.The book would have been much
better if it moved at a faster pace.Ms. Cofer had a lot of
Spanish phrases and words in the book.It would have been
helpful if she had put some sort of glossary or had
defined them in the story because I could not understand
those words.Overall though, it had interesting characters
and an interesting plot.
