The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing: #bookreview

You won’t hear me say this about very many books but I loved this book. It’s not really about dancing. I mean, there are people dancing at homecoming dances and weddings. There is one character that wishes they would have pursued a career in dancing.

So what is this book about? In a nutshell, this book is about family and forgiveness. People sometimes want to avoid their families because it’s easier than dealing with everyone’s issues. Is all of the avoidance worth it in the end?

To summarize, Amina goes back home to see her father, who may or may not be ill. He’s been talking to ghosts for a little while. The family has had two major tragedies so Amina isn’t sure if he’s having a mental breakdown or if it’s something else.

I liked the combination of the past and the present. Some writers make flashbacks that don’t mesh.

The characters were written so well. I feel like I know them or would recognize them if I saw them on the street.

The relationship between Amina and her mother has been difficult like many other mother/daughter relationships all over the world. Still, she goes home even though she doesn’t want to deal with her mother. She also stays longer than she wants but that’s what people do for their families.

This book gets 5 out of 5 stars.
