Djinn Patrol & Its Wonderful, Heartbreaking Kids

Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line

By: Deepa Anappara

Djinn Patrol is one of those books I picked up not at all knowing what I was going to get and absolutely loved despite the dark and tragic subject manner.

And I think it’s because Anappara brings the characters and the setting (but especially the characters) to life so well that I felt that I was there running the streets with the kids and I wanted to keep them all safe and fix everything that was wrong. Unfortunately there is a lot wrong for them.

Hidden Figures

Directed By: Theodore Melfi

Grade: A-

I finally got to see Hidden Figures this week! It’s one I had been looking forward to for a long time and thankfully it lived up to the hype. Even though my theater somehow forgot how to start the movie on time and then how to turn down the lights. But that’s a whole other deal.
