She’s Like A Rainbow by Eileen Colucci is outside my comfort zone, but every now and then I need to shake myself up.
I have read so much murder and death, that they all began to run together and I needed a break. This ray of sunshine fit the bill.
She’s Like A Rainbow by Eileen Colucci is an original and creative story that illustrates how we are more similar than different, with our own insecurities and problems dogging us. Teens and adults alike can learn a thing or two from Reema.
I had been looking for books outside my normal reading and when Eileen offered me a copy, I accepted. The cover was what first drew me in, but when I read the blurb I thought it would be a fun story.
The allusion to the legend of the White Buffalo fits Reema’s life. The baby starts out white and changes color when he gets older. Most of us are a collection of nationalities.
Reema is a strong and determined young girl who refuses to give up on what she believes to be the truth. She shows love, patience and persistence as she seeks the answers to her questions.
All the childhood angst, plus…
The writing is wonderful and touches on many issues, such as being Muslim, and adoption.
I would highly recommend this story to people of all ages.
