It actually has a title: Clap Back. The author is known as well: Nalo Hopkinson. Yeah, that Nalo Hopkinson. Currently free to Prime Readers—Book 5 of 6 in Black Stars.

Review: Like a Toni Morrison book set in the future, which is still our past and unfortunately our present. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

#MorganJenkins #ThisWillBeMyUndoing is a phenomenal read, raw and uncut- it delves into the the deep and dark moments of a young black girl trying to fit in a different skin while grappling with her #identitycrisis - a woman unraveling and remembering all the moments that bring her to the altar of her own becoming. #memoirs #blackwomanbrilliance #racism #blackwomen #blacklivesmatter #blackwriters

Jess7 #I borrowed this book from the library, but had to return it before I had a chance to read it. It sounds really good 4y
Momoniqui @Jess7 it‘s really good! I am working on finishing it, and as I teach a group of freshmen girls it‘s so interesting to see how much of what the author wrote about her experiences mirrors that of my students 😒 4y
overtheedge What a fantastic, heartbreaking and warming memoir. Honest, candid, and we'll written, this eye opening book will help us all to really consider how we, as humans, interact. This book is vital!! I hope she will continue to share her experiences and wisdom with us! 4y

#CurrentlyListening - this is due back at the library by the end of the day! Good thing it‘s only 3 and a 1/2 hours long, so I should be able to listen to the whole thing today.

#blackwriters - #riotgrams

Moonpa I‘m listing to this too - amazing - but heads up - it‘s longer than 3.5 hours! 5y
Laughterhp @Moonpa Really? The version my library had is only 3.5 hours.. 5y
Moonpa @Laughterhp Mine says that too but if you look at the table of contents - the first part is more than 3.5 hours. Thankfully I was able to renew the loan. 5y
