Review: Black Water Sister by Zen Cho

I added Black Water Sister by Zen Cho immediately to my TBR once she announced it on her Twitter. The blurb blew me away and gave me all the feels. While I might not be the daughter of immigrant parents from Malaysia, I am the daughter of a man who escaped the blazing Indonesian weather. Read More
