Review This Product
Thu, 30 Jun 2016 | Review by: Sue H
This book contains two strong protagonists and well-developed supporting characters who dance together across the pages. Brilliantly executed this story looks at the heartbreaking horror of domestic abuse behind a façade of respectability, the appalling conditions Japanese American citizens were subjected to after Pearl Harbour and different takes on what construes as a family.
Much of the hype around this book focuses it being a retelling of Peter Pan but this is not exactly accurate. Although there are some parallels to J. M. Barrie’s story, Nora & Kettle is far more than a retelling. While I have always loved the story of Peter Pan, it is a relief to see it used only as inspiration. I have not found a retelling that doesn’t focus on the immortality before and this makes a great change.
What I took away from this book are the extremes of tolerance and respect.
