Great perspective!

on 6/14/2015

My world history teacher assigned this book for her students to read over the summer. Although some students did not care for this "history" book, I actually enjoyed reading history from a different perspective. The way that the author uses different drinks to signify different eras of history was ingenious! The book was interesting and easy to get through. I also remembered some "glass" references from this book during my actual world history class!
