Book Review: Musical Youth by Joanne C. Hillhouse

musical_youthMusical Youth is beautifully written. It is a pride to Caribbean young adult fiction. Though it addresses a current and very real social issue, the writer skillfully educates you while she takes you back to the innocence of school days in the Caribbean. You can’t help but remember your first crush, how every little thing they did is permanently etched in your memory.

There is a good blend of characters throughout the book, and they complement each other well. It was also refreshing to read a story about children doing positive things.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it to fellow readers.
