YA Recs: Irises

Irises by Francisco X. Stork

Irises

Summary:

After the unexpected death of their father, sisters Kate and Mary must figure out how to care for themselves and their mother, who is in a permanent vegetative state.

Why I loved it:

First, I enjoyed this book because the writing was beautiful, which drew me in instantly. I love stories that focus on family relationships, and Stork does a fantastic job depicting the different personalities of the two sisters. They both feel realistic to me, and I enjoyed watching their relationship progress. I also¬†appreciated the book’s approach to the character’s religion. The portrayal was powerful without feeling preachy.
