Lucretia and the Kroons
Random House Publishing Group
While I understand the desire to be gritty and realistic, I found the opening chapter of Lucretia and the Kroons just too harsh to be interested in continuing the read. There are very few books that I don’t finish and sadly this is one of them.
It isn’t clear what age group this story is aimed at, and the opening leaves the target audience in doubt. I don’t normally have a problem with this, but the idea of a children’s book in which children are screaming at each other that they are whores makes me shudder.
