Poetry Friday: Worthy, and a Reader's Review

Today's Poetry Friday is inspired by an early review of Firstborn posted on a bookseller's site.

Between the pages
you heard me whisper life truth:

A Review by Creazian
"This reminded me of hunger games and a little bit about the Chinese culture. So this book was exciting to me. In the Chinese culture, many parents want a boy, so oftentimes, a girl is abandoned under the one child law. For me personally, I have a grandma who thinks girls are worthless. Whenever she calls my house from China, she always wants to speak to my brother and she will go so far as to hang up on me if I talk to her instead.
So I can kind of relate to Tiadone in the book and together, we went on a journey."

Wow. Powerful review from someone struggling with their place in the world solely based on their gender. Love that your book touched this reader. =)
