It’s nice to know that even after being published for over three years, Painted Black is still getting excellent reviews. Here’s a little bit of what Brittany Perez from Oh My Bookness has to say about it. If you want to read her whole review, she’s posted it several places, including here at at book review blog.
Here is the thing about Painted Black author Debra R. Borys, she treats her characters as if they were there standing right in front of you hearing their story for the first time. … Fiction does not mean we have to lose the realistic qualities, show them as one dimensional beings … Debra R. Borys makes us remember even if it’s fiction or another story on streets, we’re reading a story about people, and real issues.
