Nerdy Book Club on Esquivel: "Through This Book, the Reader Discovers the True Power of Music"


Zu-zu-WOW!! Amazing Esquivel review from Nerdy Book Club!

Author Susan Wood’s voice is distinct, strong, and lyrical throughout the book, allowing the reader to fully connect with Esquivel as both a person and musician. The reader is able to imagine what the music sounds like as the biography unfolds because of the strong literary quality of the text. Sound and music equal life to Esquivel, and the book delivers this message solidly throughout, like a clear distinct trumpet blaring or the call of a saxophone melody heard in Esquivel’s music.

Many thanks, reviewer Elizabeth Brown—I’m so grateful!
