Under the Mesquite

By Novel Thoughts

Lately, I’ve come to really, really love verse novels and this with the rich language and heart-breaking story was no exception. The story of Mexican-Americans becoming more American than Mexican after transplantation is a common, but McCall’s beautifully heart-wrenching words make it its own.

It was a very, very fast read (I think I read it like 2 hours) but it certainly packs a punch in the scarce words. I very much enjoyed it and will be checking out more of her works!
