New Yorker on Jenna Bush's new book

Ink: First Book: The Talk of the Town: The New Yorker:
The [president's daughter's] book has a spare, verging-on-hardboiled prose style ("'How did your parents die?' Ana asked. 'They were sick,' Berto said. 'Mine, too.'"), and suggests that Jenna may yet have a future following Margaret Truman and Susan Ford into the mystery-novel genre. She has a weakness for dubious ethnic analogies: "His eyes were wild, like those of the pumas that lived in the jungles."
