A National Book Award Longlist title!

Fans of Jacqueline Woodson, Meg Medina, and Jason Reynolds will fall hard for this astonishing New York Times-bestselling novel-in-verse by an award-winning slam poet, about an Afro-Latina heroine who tells her story with blazing words and powerful truth.

The Adults Who Read YA Book Club meets to discuss any and all genres of young adult literature. Characters, themes, symbols, and the intersection of fiction and real life are all up for lively discussion. A bonus ingredient is the critical perspective of several writers in the group.
