    Epub Sour Heart Epub ✓ µ stroyki.pro µ sour download, heart ebok, Sour Heart ePUBThis collection of short stories is organised around an extremely interesting and original idea each story is narrated by a child that is connected to the children and adults in the other stories through their families having shared a bedroom in the first difficult months after moving from China to the US Sharing a mattress with one's parents shared sleeping arrangements with other families this is the universal immigrant experience it seems There are other common elements that run through the stories; mother daughter relationships that are strong but also twisted and somewhat dysfunctional; grief over dashed hopes; a sense of overwhelming odds stacked against the characters; and at the same time a sense of resilience and spiritedness The first story We Love You Crispina blew my head off with its rawness and directness A young girl describes her experiences moving from one derelict bug infested house to another with a dad that hooks a gilrfriend at
