I really enjoyed this book! The modern retelling of a classic book from a Mexican American family in the Trump era was a story line I did not see coming!
Wow, how do I even begin this review? I have SO MANY FEELINGS about this book. It’s set in African folklore, all about that black girl magic, AND it’s a response piece to police brutality against black bodies? UGH, slay me, Tomi. And don’t even get me started on the fact that Tomi is my age (26) and out here slaying her FIRST NOVEL and already has a movie deal?! UGH, slay me AGAIN, Tomi!!!!!!!!
2018 was the year of falling back in love with reading and the books that played a key role in morphing me into the young woman (ew, adulting) that I am today.
