Courage. Readers looking to read something that will promote good feelings should consider Jeannette Walls’ novel, The Silver Star. I finished the book with a reminder about the difference that a single individual can make on a community, and the ways in which courage can overcome injustice. Walls could have crossed a line into sentimentality, but she avoided that with skill. This is a short novel that can be read quickly. When I finished it, I felt refreshed and optimistic.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
