Wing Jones is a debut novel by the wonderful Katherine Webber about the difficulties of being caught between 2 worlds and how it can help you find your talent.
Wing Jones is beyond words amazing! Before starting this book I was hesitant in reading it simply because it had so many great reviews and I know how silly it sounds but I really didn’t want to dislike Wing and I certainly didn’t. Wing Jones is exceptional! It is obvious that the topic of being caught between 2 worlds is a topic that Katherine cared about because it was written so beautifully.
I fell in love with so many of the characters most importantly the grandmothers,I absolutely loved them, I found them hilarious and I also loved Aaron of course!
This is a 2017 MUST read! I would highly recommend this debut and I can’t wait for the next Katherine Webber novel!
