Spin the Plate: a Novel - Donna Anastasi Spin the Plate revolves around the world of Jo, a female tattoo artist. I found the character of Jo to be interesting from her hard exterior and her tattooing world to her internal struggles. I enjoyed everything about the character, especially her interest in and care of stray animals. This was a nice way to show Jo's true character. I wasn't as captivated by the character of Francis, who Jo slowly became to trust and in doing so changes her life. The author did a good job of capturing Francis's faith without harping on the religious aspects. I found the book to be very enjoyable, even with the heavy and important subject of child abuse being featured.The ending was sweet and seemed to complete the story and bring it full circle. Overall, I am glad to have read this and look forward to read the author's future books.
