Can‘t really get into reading right now so I‘m watching a teen horror movie instead. Of course. I read this book when it first came out, I might do a reread for #Scarathlon seeing as Grady Hendrix is the #AuthorAMonth as well. #TeamSlaughter 1pt

Repost for @Soubhiville

It‘s October, time to pull out our Grady Hendrix books for #AuthorAMonth. What are you planning to read?

#AuthorAMonth is a no-pressure, no-commitment Litsy challenge. The goal is to celebrate the works of a particular author each month. Authors were chosen through polls by Litsy participants. Read as many as you like, skip months when needed, it's entirely up to you!

Zuhkeeyah Just borrowed “The Final Girl Support Group“! 2d
willaful Oh, I've seen Horrorstor mentioned as similar to Finna, so I'm interested now. 2d

Hey #AuthorAMonth fam - this just popped on to Amazon Prime yesterday! I haven‘t watched yet but I‘m sure it‘ll be a silly romp. I‘ve read a bunch of Hendrix already so I think I‘ll kick off Spooky Szn weekend by watching this. @Soubhiville

I have complicated feelings about this book. Nic Stone does a fantastic job of showing the why behind black men looking for non-traditional families. What I struggle with is the amount of aid Quan receives while in juvie (she mentions this in the afterword): psychiatrist, teacher, etc. These are not usually options, especially when in an adult prison which is where too many teenage black men end up. Still, it is a story of hope against all odds.

Zuhkeeyah Another great read for #authoramonth 3d
TheBookHippie I had those same reservations. 3d
Zuhkeeyah @TheBookHippie I understand why she included them. The alternative would‘ve created a very bleak picture, but kind of it felt like she was selling a lie. 3d
TheBookHippie @Zuhkeeyah I‘ve been advocate/mentor for at risk youth for 32 years. I felt she was selling a lie, it reminded me of people trying to tell me how it should be or “what‘s right” - it‘s not though and I have to deal with what is. I‘ll never forget a woman acquaintance who had to deal with the juvenile justice system for the first time, IT‘S not FAIR, she yelled at me. I asked her if she‘d listen to me ever …oh well I thought you were exaggerating… 3d

A powerful read that dives into the implicit bias against young black men. Justyce grew up in the hood, but is a straight A student at a prestigious school on the other side of the city. None of that matters when an officer aggressively misinterprets a situation, leaving Justyce to question: does it matter what he does if it doesn‘t change how the world sees him?

Cutting it really close with this month's #AuthorAMonth selection. This is good. But it's a book for kids. It still almost made me cry on the train.

Shenice is the captain of an all Black softball team headed to a championship, but she faces distraction in the form a family mystery about her great grandpa and the end of his baseball dreams. The resolution of the story was a bit abrupt, but Nic Stone does a great job of blending together a contemporary sports story and African American history. 🥎
