Slide 8: The last novel I’m going to talk about in this text set is Stealing Our Way Home by Cecilia Galante. Unlike Paper Wishes and The Night Diary this is not historical fiction. This is realistic fiction set in modern day times. The other thing that makes this novel different from the other two is that it’s a dual narrative. So, it alternates perspectives between the brother, Jack, and the sister, Pippa. What Pippa has in common with Manami and Nisha is that she, too, loses her voice. This happens after her mother dies, and she strugglest throughout the novel as well to find her voice.
