Dion search for their mother's relatives unable to afford to make even one mistake. My least favorite book so far Lena is a simple story and perhaps in my uest to finish thirty books in six weeks I picked one of Woodson s less reputable books Lena is about a young girl who takes her sister and trecks across the country to get away from an abusive father but doesn t really make it all that far The writing was fine but not enchanting The story was lackluster and intended for extremely juvenile concepts The struggle of the protagonists was easily resolved and not relatable Overall it might be a good book for young readers who come from abusive homes but I really didn t feel like Woodson confronted the issue of abuse just side stepped around it with a short and fruitless journey Woodson writes dialects well but ultimately that did not redeem the entire story for me
