A most unusual book that reads like middle grade with a YA message making it almost like an oral tradition that‘s finally written... ScrappyMags.com
An interesting story. Very "woke" and touches on a tough topic in a somewhat fantastical, magical realism way. It's a finalist in the 2019 National Book Awards Young People's Literature category. I definitely get the hype & can see how it would prompt important discussions in a less threatening way. It's a different take on the typical YA Contemporary, and it's a pretty quick read at around 200 pages so it's definitely worth checking out.
