30 Day Challenge - Day 26

Day 26 - Favorite non-fiction book

I don’t have a YA one here (although I think any teen would love this book as well)

But by far my favorite is The Latehomecomer by Kao Kalia Yang


Shop Indie Bookstores

Such a beautiful book, an incredible story, a love for family and heritage. and Kao Kalia Yang is just the sweetest person ever. I love this book.

Love is the reason why my mother and father stick together in a hard life when they might each have an easier one apart; love is the reason why you choose a life with someone, and you don’t turn back although your heart cries sometimes and your children see you cry and you wish out loud that things were easier. Love is getting up each day and fighting the same fight only to sleep that night in the same bed beside the same person because long ago, when you were younger and you did not see so clearly, you had chosen them.
