Miss Ex-Yugoslavia by Sofija Stefanovic
And Now We Have Everything by Meaghan O’Connell
In the last two weeks I’ve read two books written by young women sharing very different life experiences. Sofija Stefanovic, Serbia-born, Australia-raised, shares her immigrant experiences while growing up under the specter of war in her homeland. Meaghan O’Connell gives a no holds barred account of her pregnancy, delivery, and first year of motherhood.
