A new student review of Caminar by Skila Brown

muffin posted a new student review of Caminar by Skila Brown. See the full review.

This book is written in verse (poetry).  It made the book very confusing and hard to understand.  The tone is serious often somber.  With war comes death and destruction and the author captures that feeling her poetry.  

The author uses short verses, which can seem be difficult to read.  It’s hard to get a sense of the characters and setting and connect on a deeper level.  I did like when the book talked about the soldiers playing soccer and doing other things with the citizens of Chopan. Overall, I did not really like Caminar by Skila Brown.
