The Brooklyn Nine is like a series in one book. Right as you are getting into one story, you’re whisked away into the next generation’s life. I liked the idea…but the book moves along too fast to really get a whole lot out of it.
I didn’t like the style of writing in this book, especially leaving big gaps in time, so I don’t think this is a Newbery winner.
