Cub is an absolute genius way to tell your story! I was a little worried about reading this because I tend to not read memoirs. It could be from all the years of having to do research papers for school, but memoirs just don’t do it for me. I enjoyed every page of this! There were moments where I had to remind myself of the time period, but I thought it was interesting to see how much time has changed, but how much it also stayed the same. The accurate description of what it junior school is like brought back memories, not bad memories, but memories nonetheless. It was inspiring to read about a teacher who takes a particular interest in Cynthia and to watch the excitement on her face as one of her articles is published in the newspaper, along with her writing articles while Leslie, proofs them. Cub shows young readers, but specifically, young women, your dreams are obtainable, once your dreams become obtainable, dream bigger. This was so interesting, I read this in one sitting!
