The Albino Album - Chavisa Woods OMG this book is so freaking amazing. I took a lot of notes and still don’t even know where to begin. It is incredibly intense, its very stream of conciousness. I haven’t been this excited about a new book since I discovered Haruki Murakami

This book is so hard to describe. But basically its about a young girl who becomes a domestic terrorist. At first you think the book is about China and Panama (characters, not the countries) but they are really just background characters. Then you find out the book is about a girl with an impronounceable name (though eventually she has a nickname of Mya and she is actually the daughter of Panama. Mya at some point somehow feeds her mom to an albino tiger and becomes horribly traumatized by it. The book has so many twists and turns, just when you think you think you know where it’s going, it changes. Side One Or part one (as the book is set up like an album) is much more hectic and confused. By the time side two or part two comes around, things are a bit more settled,

There are some intense girl girl sex scenes, but if you aren’t into that it might bother you but I loved it. I don’t think I’m going to say much more because I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone. In anycase, read it, its fantastic.
