"The truth is I wrote this book to say the things I’m not supposed to say. I wanted to tell a story where the person in pain doesn’t pretend. And I wanted to explore what it looks like to feel all these things at the same time: joy, love, rage. All of it."
I knew as soon I as read the author's letter, that this was not going to be an ordinary story. Yaminah's voice is distinct and captures your attention right away. The writing is strong and draws you in--the tone shift during the text exchange with Cousin Tiffany was brilliant. I'm not sure where the book will go from here, but it seems like it'll be an interesting story.
