Reviews for Yolonda's Genius (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5YOLANDA'S GENIUS by Carol Fenner is a book which explores important social issues through one extraordinary girl's relationships with her family and classmates. Yolanda's sense of herself and her confidence in who she is, is an attitude that all children would do well to imitate, as she deals with prejudices that are less related to race than to the diversity found within each individual. Fenner's style is rhythmic and musical and her characters are rich and strong. The book depicts how brightly one person can shine among many, and is a testament to the power of the individual. I don't know how realistic the scenario is, especially in light of the unlikely ending, but the story promotes hope in an unsure and unstable world. It maintains that through hard work and courage, hope is realized. YOLANDA'S GENIUS is a good book to add to your children's library.
