I think I have a new favorite book of 2013

Good Kings Bad Kings

Good Kings Bad Kings

By: Susan Nussbaum

Genre: realistic fiction

Pages: 298

Published: 2013

Read: October

5 out of 5

I love when books grab you from the very first page. I knew right away I would love this book. Even though it was a heart-wrenching read the characters were true to themselves and had a great sense of humor. The saddest aspect of the book is that even though it is a fictional book, I’m sure it is also very true – what an eye-opener. I felt for all the characters and even the adults that were causing some of the devastating circumstances because they were just trying to survive and make a living himself. That is except Tim, who was only out to better his and his family’s lifestyle.  I am tired of reading books that are in trilogies or worse, series; however I really felt I knew these people and would love to hear what happened to Yessie, Joanne, Ricky and the others in the future.  My only criticism would be that the novel doesn’t have a catchy title or appealing cover, if this wasn’t a recommendation I probably would have never picked it up AND that would have been a true disappointment.

This is Susan's first novel and I hope to see more.
