The latest post was quite simple:
“My mother called me over to a window, and we peeked in.”~~ The Floating World by Cynthia Kadohata
A coming-of-age story set in a moving world.
I knew immediately that I wanted to read this book.
So I asked myself, what about that one line made it so powerful?
There is a mother which means there is a child. And a window worth peeking through. The hint of curiousity. And the title! Oh, the title! Telling me that there’s an entire world which had found itself floating.
I didn’t even need the short recap afterwards.
Honestly, I couldn’t imagine a better book review. And I’m thrilled at the power of one written line.
