Challenging book to understand
Brown Girl, Brownstones is a great book that anyone would like to read. This book was written by Paule Marshall, and I think she wrote a extraordinary story that can teach anyone a lesson. Really my opinion is that this book can help us kids learn or know how to make better decisions and take the right path. Well at they beginning of the story I thought it was confusing - you have to pay extra attention to understand the small details the author wants you to see. Another small detail is that whenever you get across a word you don't understand, look it up, beacuse it can help you know what the author is trying to get across. But something I really didn't like about the story is when the dad left and then suddenly he was dead. It seemed to me that in this part of the story it was not really finished because there weren't enough details. But eventhough the book had its bad sides, it had a couple of good things. For example, when Selina realizes how her decisions affected her life , she got some consequences that she would regret sooner or later. Eventhough this book was extra hard to understand and long, it can teach you and others really great lessons that Selina had to go through. I personally recommend it to many kids because it can sow them many things you can't see eventhough you are doing them. The lesson that I learned from this book was that the decisions and choices you make determine the consequences you will get. But when you realize something you did good or wrong you can go back and take another opportunity and go the right way.
