American Dirt
American Dirt By Cummins, Jeanine Book - 2020 | First U.S. edition.

I was aware of the controversy surrounding this book before I read it but it is fiction and I read it on that level. If it were non-fiction I would expect it to be taken apart tooth and nail but it is an invented story based on 4 years of authors research. If I can relate to a character/s in any work of fiction than I'll follow their story to the end and if it is a good one I won't bother with the pedantic take that others may have formulated.
This is a good story but it is way over the top dramatic and sometimes I thought it was too much especially near the end. Is it the Grapes of Wrath for a generation? Uh, I won't go that far even if the book cover does.
