BOOK RECS!

Paradise by Toni Morrison
Affirmation that change only occurs through action, not complaining.

Another:
Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Religion, intergenerational respect, political unrest in Nigeria, family abuse hidden behind public philanthropy. Often compared to elder Nigerian novel Things Fall Apart. SUCH an easy read, and really, really endearing characters. I love this book.
