I really enjoyed reading The Cherry Robbers. This book has so many different characters and the author does an amazing way of animating each one and making you see both their flaws and the things that make them great. Often, when reading a book with this many characters it is hard to feel any specific way about any of them other than the main character and it just feels crowded, but I did not feel that way reading this book at all. I grew to love Iris and her sisters and was genuinely sad to see the story end, but I truly believe that it ended in the best way possible. This book explored feminist themes in a very interesting way that is able to hook readers into wanting to read more. Hearing Sylvia tell the story of her youth through journals was genuinely an amazing way to format the story and I felt that it helped make the book to be as amazing as it was. I would definitely recommend this book to friends and family!
