Swallow’s Dance by Wendy Orr
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Reading was not a waste of time but I didn’t feel hooked from the beginning. It was more like something I had to finish because I started it. Even halfway through the book I was trying to identify the point of the story. The main character didn’t seem to grow. She was strong and did what was needed to survive but I didn’t see how that changed her internally.

The writing style was good although the mix of novel writing with poetry formatting was slightly strange. The writing didn’t seem to warrant the change in formatting. It was too random and left me expecting more.
