One of the reasons I lives this book is because. It tells a black story that is not the cliché and tropes that has dominated any kind of expression of blackness. it's a story any girl, and especially any black girl could see herself in, a story any black girl could see herself the star of. Books like these are rare and I really appreciate and love this one.
This is my second time reading this book. Having the story narrated was a different experience. I laughed, got excited and sympathized with the character.Looking forward to hearing more from this author.
I enjoyed the progression of this story.
My favorite scene was when Davi ended up in the lap of her longtime crush while at work.
I wouldn't rename it.
Learning to let go, let God, let it be, don't need to be right, don't need to be wrong, be kind.
Vulnerable + Hot + Powerful
The accent was never one that I could conjured up in my head. It makes the whole story come alive!
The main character in the moment when she realized that she could allow her 'other' to come out and sing!!!
I loved when she awakened the memory of her mother defending her. So often we remember easily and completely all the bad. But, in that moment, she took her mom from one dimensional to 3D. In retrospect, I would say, all the characters eventually went through this transformation in Davie's mind's eye.
Loved it.. Couldn't wait to get in my car after work each day to listen... Performance by the narrator was fine to me...main character is crazy, but a girl after my own heart.. Really enjoyed..
