The House of the Scorpion

This is a highly acknowledged work and so I had to pick it up. To start with it is a future dystopian novel. I really enjoyed this novel and was impressed with the inequality as discussed throughout the work. It is a happily ever after type book so be aware going in. If you’re looking for a good book that will grab you pull you in and not let go, open this one up. It was refreshing to have a South American feel to it. My assumption is the area is north of Mexico and south of Texas near the Gulf of Mexico. I like that it tackles topics like human rights/racism/bigotry and others from a separate view then is normally done. It is being read by my 8th grader son and I think it will really benefit him.
