“They may not know who Louis Armstrong is, but I made sure they know who was taking over for the nine-nine and the two thousand.”

Mehso-so

Brittney Morris‘s debut YA polemic is a mixed bag that‘s strong on racial politics, micro aggressions and political pressures within the African American community and it‘s great to read a celebration of black American culture. However, the plot is filled with improbabilities and inconsistencies and the focus on the Black American experience comes at the expense of global black experience while toxic masculinity gets a disturbing pass.

This was billed as a cross between Ready Player One and The Hate U Give. MC is a 17-year-old black girl who develops/runs a multi-player online game. Some reviewers complain that the scenario is not technically plausible. Luckily, I'm not a programmer, and I was immersed in the story. Others get caught up in one of the story lines—whether “reverse-racism“ is at work. People: shut up, listen, learn! Bottom line: WOW, this was a fantastic debut!

Chelleo @BellaBookNook Ohhh, tough. My thoughts? Finish Slay because it‘s shorter...you want to be fully free to dive into CoBB. 1w

Autocorrect just changed audiobook to “ideal baby” and I feel very seen. 😂 I had the tagged book checked out as an ePub book but I found out for me with ebooks it‘s gotta be Kindle or nothing so I‘m gonna finish with the audio version. It‘s very good so far. #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals #TBRread

Snuck downstairs this morning, made some tea, grabbed my favorite quilt and sat down for some reading before the house woke up! The best way to begin December!❤️ #diversebooks #blacklitsy

Chelleo Nice! Love that quilt and bookmark 1w
BellaBookNook My friend made it for me and I absolutely love to read while wrapped in it. I haven‘t been on here in so long but going to give it a try again. I just realized I‘m not subscribed to your posts that why I never see your posts. Rectifying that now!☺️ 1w

This book was not for me. A teen girl creates a video game that is just for black people. The book deals with issues of what is racist and censorship and responsibility. But overall I did not feel like I agreed with the message.

Heard nothing but good things about this book, but it didn‘t click for me. However, there were lots of things I liked. Finding your own identity, creating a community, the bonds within the gaming culture. Acceptance that all people in the African diaspora are not alike, and not letting anyone else define who you should be or how you should act, because of how you look or what their definition of being black is. Boyfriend issue was handled well.
