YALSA Morris/Nonfiction Challenge Check-in #5

18 Jan

I have finished!  This week I read my last two books for the YALSA Morris/Nonfiction Challenge. First, I read

Unknown-1

The title worried me.When I first picked up  Sex and Violence  by Carrie Mesrobian, I was worried it would full of sex and violence.But it is really all about the aftermath. Funny and heartbreaking, the story tells the story of Evan’s recovery after a beating, which he received for being with a girl. I found him hard to like at first, but,as he recovers, you understand him and see him grow. As does his father.

Today, I finished Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross, which is set in Belle Epoque Paris.

Unknown-2

I saved this one for the end because the setting was very attractive to me.Interesting, since the book is about beauty. What it is, what it isn’t and the power that comes with having, or not having it.
Both books have flawed protagonists. But none of us are perfect either, are we?
