Cover_Final_2Olympic Gardens is a fascinating new novel by Andrene Bonner. It is a story of displacement, literacy, friendship, and hope. 

 By the time Roderick Brissett learns that he is being shipped away from his rural family home to live with his aunt in the city, it is too late for a reprieve. His mother’s decision came without questions or answers. Roderick’s youth is tested under the most adverse conditions. It is within the abyss of such harsh realities that he must find strength and seek some semblance of joy that will help him to survive, grow, and find his place in the world.

    Olympic Gardens is an amazing book! If a child is looking for adventure, humor, and the important touch of reality. It is a heart-felt, and wonderful story. The author’s creativity, and use of descriptive writing helps me visualize the story in my head. I can see Roderick “takin a bus to town” and being yelled at by his mother. Olympic Gardens will soon be a Jamaican classic, read for ages to come. Well done Miss Bonner, well done.
