#48HBC: Bayou Magic

Book finished: Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes

This is a lush love letter to the Louisiana bayou. Almost-ten-year-old Maddy is summoned to spend the summer with her Grandmere in the Bon Temps bayou, a place about as far from civilization as you can get. Feeling an immediate connection with her Grandmere upon arrival, Maddy spends the summer falling in love with the flora and fauna of the bayou and figuring out the special role she holds in her family and in this close-knit community.

It's getting close to bedtime for me, but I will try to start one more book tonight before I fall asleep. Fiance has finished a couple of his Swamp Thing graphic novels and just started Get Jiro by Anthony Bourdain.
