David knows a bookstore that is neither Mormon nor a Barnes and Noble. Do I mind taking a little ride? Abso-freaking-lutely not.

umbrellagirl How is a Mormon bookshop different from a non-Mormon bookshop? 48m
Lindy @umbrellagirl I guess you haven‘t had the experience of accidentally walking into a Christian bookshop, thinking it was a regular bookshop. now
umbrellagirl @Lindy No, but I guess a Mormon bookshop would be similar. now

Sitting at my mom‘s vanity, I stare brutally at my face in the mirror. I guess I‘ll always have this face, which is super annoying.

This was beautiful. Parker packs a LOT into this book. Inspired by the author‘s own experiences, the protagonist grapples with anxiety/depression while trying to define herself. She‘s one of only a few Black kids at a very conservative Christian high school. I really loved Parker‘s heartfelt letter to readers at the end in which she tells kids going through similar situations that they are loved and shares tips on getting into therapy.

For a book about anxiety/ depression, this one is keeping me chuckling. I‘m now considering posting “be the syllabus you wish to see in this world” somewhere in my classroom.

Morgan Parker uses her own experiences as a teenager to write this novel about a 15 year old, Morgan Parker, who struggles to find balance after being diagnosed with depression. Not only that, she is one of the only students of color in her private Christian school (and in her neighborhood, suburbia) where she is discouraged from having her own opinions. ⤵️

ReadingEnvy I like how her identity is also part emo, with all the appropriate musical references, and also a slight tribute to The Golden Notebook maybe?
.
I had a copy of this from the publisher through NetGalley. I am already a fan of Parker's poetry and although this YA novel is for a different audience, I think her selfhood and strength shine through here as well. This came out September 24, 2019.

This chapter title is hilarious and fits the tone of the book so far, self deprecating with an underlying feeling of anxiety.....

MandaMT I love the chapter titles in this book! 3w

I‘m grateful for authors writing YA about depression & anxiety in raw, real, heartfelt ways, for authors writing YA differently. Morgan Parker‘s YA novel is like a solid mix CD given to you by someone who knows and loves you and has seen your ugly parts.
