Lucky Broken Girl: Book Review

Hello! Today I have a book review on the new book Lucky Broken Girl by Ruth Behar. Enjoy!

The book takes place in New York City from 1966 – 1967. A young Cuban – Jewish girl named Ruthie Mizrahi has recently emigrated from Cuba to Queens, New York. She is proclaimed the Hopscotch Queen of Queens of the neighborhood. That is until she is in a terrifying car accident and breaks her leg.

Ruthie is confined to her bed and is in a body cast. She longs to explore the world, yet while she lays there she meets many interesting people who tell their stories to her.

My personal favorite part of this book is all the multicultural characters in it and how it is so intriguing. I read this book in one whole day, I couldn’t stop myself!

I hope you enjoyed this quick, little book review. Stay tuned for more posts! ~ Mara
