Book 1

Title: The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico
Author: Sarah McCoy
Themes/Topics: Coming of Age, Puerto Rico

I was excited to discover this novel: I received it in a Goodreads giveaway and was eager to read it and discover a new author, Sarah McCoy.

The story was very sweet and the characters definitely had an authenticity and depth to them. With no exposure to either Puerto Rico and its inhabitants I found the novel interesting for the glimpse it gave me into another way of life.

It was an easy read and a quality piece of young adult fiction. The themes were not so childish that I was disinterested, but not so grown-up that the subject material wasn't believable.

I definitely recommend this book to others and look forward to other novels that she will publish.
