Book Review

Below are quick links to book reviews that I have made throughout the years. I’ve divided them into simply Fiction and Nonfiction. All are some aspects of living overseas or raising third culture kids. For reference all books are written for adults unless noted (YA = Young Adult; MG = Middle Grade; PB = Picture Book).
