Have You Seen Luis Velez (by Catherine Ryan Hyde) … the ability to see Luis…or really anyone you pass on the street…is the real mystery

This book was one that really made me stop and think about how I develop impressions of people I see as I go about my normal day. Do I make racial judgments based on the color of someone’s skin? Do I feel that other people make judgments about me…based on my physical characteristics, my religious beliefs, etc.?

Raymond Jaffe is an amazing young man. His maturity is impressive; his willingness to tackle a project on behalf of one of his neighbor’s is admirable. If there were more people like Raymond in the world today, we would be in a much better place.

I fell in love with Mildred Guterman. She had a wonderful way of looking at life and the things that go on around her. She is one tough cookie and is a good influence on Raymond.

The author does a wonderful job of bringing you into the story and making you care about so many of the characters as you turn the pages and get sucked into the search for Luis Velez. What a wonderful story!

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
