The People of Paper ♥♥♥♥

I loved this book! I may have to read it again some other day though. But I have to say very interesting book by Salvador Plascencia, I love the format in the book, the narrations by the characters and the descriptions given. You'll get attached to these characters :) A very nice book. A brief summary: It is about a father called Federico de la Fe who has a wife named Merced and a daughter named Little Merced. His wife abandons him because he couldn't stop peeing on the bed. He tried everything to find a cure for it and he did but after she had left... Little Merced inherited her mother's love for limes. She eats them when her father is not looking for not to make him sad. They leave on a journey to California and the rest you'll just have to find out. You may find it a little strange and it is a blend of fiction and autobiography but it is new and refreshing.


  1. Aww, I think I'd enjoy this book.
    Her love of limes and attempts to hide it from her father is so wonderfully endearing.
