CHARACTERS ¼ Burn Baby Burn Ily life isn’t going so well either her bullying brother Hector is growing threatening by the day her mother is helpless and falling behind on the rent and her father calls only on holidays All Nora wants is to turn eighteen and be on her own And while there is a cute new guy who started working with her at the deli is dating even worth the risk. I m not usually a fan of New York novels I think for the most part they reach a really niche market Medina though takes this in a place that made me really invested as it s about the historical summer of 1977 when the city was burning and a serial killer named Son of Sam is on the loose Nora our narrator is Latina and her best friend is a white girl Both of them are deeply invested in feminism but what Medina does is offer a look at the ways feminism isn t necessarily inclusive either in the late 70s or now It s smart in the approachBut the thing that kept me reading was Nora s family Her younger brother Hector is getting himself in trouble and their mother doesn t seem to care She s doting on him rather than looking at the problems he s facing But when he becomes criminal in a way that she can t deny any things fall even harder on Nora for not speaking up when she had the chance It s nuanced and thought provoking with a side of a deadbeat father that resonated in a hard way for me There aren t many YA books set in this time period and Medina adds a really great one here

    Burn Baby Burn (PDF) Going into this I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised The thriller element wasn't as stone as I'd hoped it would be but that ended up not to matter It was the characters their relationships their private lives and uncertainty of it all that had me totally hooked I really enjoy each character and thought the different levels of relationships portrayed throughout were so interesting to follow and to be a part o
