Look! It's my book!

Reading is fun ... damental, by Swishy at Waiting for My Real Life to Begin.

Bookmark this: Steve the Penguin…a first novel smash by Mahlena-Rae Johnson, by affrodite at Affrodite’s Adventures in Nappy Hair.

. . . All in all, Steve the Penguin is a great read, very current in its adaptation (love the use of online chatting in some of the chapters) and composed with wit at the helm but without sacrificing gravity of the longings of main character, Bianca. As an added treat, those of Caribbean descent will identify with missing great food from home and the contrast of life in the islands to life in the states.

Oprah honey, when you read this post make sure you check out Mahlena-Rae Johnson’s first novel Steve the Penguin, add it to your book of the month list, and invite her on the show. She promises not to jump on your sofa. ;-) Oh, and tell Gayle that she’ll like it, too! . . .

Thank you both!
