⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Yellow Woman grabbed me from page 1 and didn't let go. A beautifully written and heartbreaking novel about American slavery. I shall never forget Pheby Delores Brown.

Book #1 2022 / Virginia

This is Hudson our new German Shepherd and Lab mix puppy. We needed some expert advise on how to raise this little guy right. How to Raise the Perfect Dog really helps you understand the way a dog thinks. With lots of patience and calm and assertive energy on our end, we will have a great new member of the family.

SW-T Hudson is adorable! Congrats to your family on its newest member. 💕 2y

I didn't want this book to end. I wanted the author to open up more, to dive deeper, and to show me what it truly is to walk in her shoes as a trans woman. Don't get me wrong; I liked this book a lot... it packed a punch. I just wanted more of Vivek Shraya's soul on the pages.

Kept putting this book off because of all the hype. I just didn't think it would live up to the overwhelming promotion it gained, and well, I just hate reading about courtroom cases. But this book... this beautiful story has become one of my favorite reads of all time. I want to read it again immediately. I know there is more to find... things I have missed in the pages of this book. So well done Delia Owens!

My daughter has read some of Hale's Princess Academy books but says Goose Girl's better. Hope you continue enjoying it! 3y
