Teen Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God

TEWWGTitle: Their Eyes Were Watching God

Author: Zora Neale Hurston

Summary:  Tells the story of Janie, a Negro girl living in Florida at the time of the Jim Crow laws, who sets out to find love after fleeing an arranged marriage.

Why I started reading:  my teacher recommended it.

In a yearbook, the main character would be voted Most Likely To:  Find love whatever it takes.

This book reminded me of Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison because they both deal with the topic of racism, and in both stories, the main character goes on a journey.

Watch out for the plot twist!
