Book Review #4

The Bamboo Garden, richly detailed and thoroughly researched, brings to life the challenges of living in Berkeley, California during the early 1920s. Young people will identify with the injustices and prejudices so vividly described and gain a deeper understanding of how it feels to be an “outsider.” Sue Austin has created a compelling story that both young and old will enjoy.
