Sweaterweather: & Other Short Stories
by Sara Varon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed several of the VERY short stories. And I think her colour palette is divine.
But I don’t think it’s a particularly good curation of stories. You’ll be hard to classify the reader for this work. The pacing generally makes each story feel geared to early readers–with lots of wordless stories. but then are mixed with a handful of text-heavy stories dealing with more adult topics. Not “adult”, just ‘adult’ (if you catch my meaning). But, I’m not sure how many grade schoolers are interested in pages from the author’s journal, or her worries about quitting her job. Certainly, an adult would appreciate this book more on the whole than a child would.
Generally a fun quick read… But I couldn’t see myself reaching for this more than once.
