Behold the Dreamers

51p6DpzkVmL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_I have had Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue on my Kindle for a long time, but it also came up as an audiobook in my Libby list, so I listened to it. What a great story! In fact, my 13-year-old dipped in and out of it as I listened to it on the way taking him to camp and he really enjoyed just the snippets he heard as well. Jende Jonga is an immigrant from Cameroon who is hired to be Clarke Edwards’ family driver. Clarke works for Lehman Brothers. Jende and his wife end up both working for the Edwards family, a family with all kinds of issues even before Lehman goes under. It’s a story of immigration, wealth, family, and secrets. I really enjoyed this one. I think it would have been equally good as a read as it was as an audiobook. I highly recommend.
