Drawing Blood
I finished Drawing Blood by Molly Crabtree, recently.

Some favorite moments:

  • A moving paragraph about "mi abuelito".
  • "She forced her damage back into those paintings."
  • "Old ladies grabbed my arm and told me I'd done good."

I had no prior knowledge of Molly Crabtree before reading Drawing Blood and I'm happy her story made its way into my life.
