A riveting portrait of a family in crisis and the ways that even the smallest twists of fate can forever change our lives, Bonita Avenue is an incendiary, unpredictable debut of relationships torn asunder by lies, and minds destroyed by madness.
When I read the synopsis for this book, I couldn't wait to read it. It sounded so intriguing, like a book I wouldn't be able to put down. Unfortunately I put it down far too much for my liking. I only read up to page forty-five when I gave up. The pacing was way too slow, I didn't care too much for the writing style, but maybe it had to do with the translation. Most importantly I was completely lost; there was times I didn't know if we were in the past or present time. It was just to much with all the flashbacks and it felt like it barely contributed to what I did read.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review
