I LOVED this book. It felt very Harry Potter…almost like I was reading Harry Potter for the first time all over again! Swooning over this book!

This was a really great challenging read! DiAngelo calls out a lot of harmful acts that are pretty common. She read the book too which I always like.

Sorry just noticed I got tagged! So my late questions!Yes! American Born Chinese, the entire Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, any Sarah Maas book 😜. Yes! (Librarian rant) the covers are designed to peak the interest fo those who will like that type of book. The cover tells you a lot about the book like the tone My book that reminds me of nature would be The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo

Maybe I‘m just emotional lately but this book got to me. Stories about vulnerability and shame from the Black experience. Laverne Cox, Jasón Reynolds, and so many wrote harrowing essays that just shook me. This book was written for Black people (as it should be) but I think white people need to listen to this for empathy and understanding.

If I could have given this more than 5 stars I would have. I‘m a pretty liberal eater. I give a lot of four and fives but this one is WORTH it! I have not wept like this since Fredrik Backman‘s The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer.

I‘ve been reading a lot of j and teen books this year while I finish up my masters. This one was so good. It showed different Indian perspectives under British rule and how racist views of Indians were brought across seas in a very age appropriate way. Not only that but it was just a good story keeping you on your toes. I will be book talking A LOT!

Karisa Thanks for posting this! Your review had me checking out a copy on Libby. You‘re so right! It‘s a wonderful read! Going to buy a copy for my classroom and recommend it to our school library. 💗 5mo
Professional_Book_Dragon @Karisa That makes my heart happy! I‘m so glad you loved it that much too! Im a youth librarian so I love finding gems like this! 5mo

If you need to cry here is the book for you. It was so good and so Heart breaking. This is probably a book for middle schoolers not younger just because it deals with sexual abuse.

I enjoyed this. I would recommend it for teens, but it felt like she was trying to make hard topics more digestible with lots of fluff. It was just a bit much at times. The narrator did a fantastic job!

I loved this book. Even being animals I felt pulled in and was emotionally attached. I really liked the end when the author explains how this is not a book that explains all deaf people‘s feelings but mine as a child.

Oh so good! This book made me hate being in grad school and having homework to do. Why do you have to be so good, book?

LoverOfLearning Okay but 150% SAME! I just finished midterms 😵 but reading for fun is a great escape. I've been sitting in my car with the windows down the last few days to enjoy the sun and get out of those stuffy apartment! 9mo

This book was so beautifully written. It was like a poem for reciprocity and the gifts the earth being us. It‘s a book that requires you to be still and take your time with it. A great read for anytime but especially fall.

Professional_Book_Dragon @Exbrarian that‘s awesome! It was a fantastic book. I learned so much about the Potawatomi and other Michigan native tribes from this book! 11mo
