This coming of age story follows Nadia Turner, a girl who goes through life trying to find herself. From losing her mom, losing her virginity, getting an abortion to losing herself, there’s so much to take in.
This novel was beautifully written and though I can’t relate to any of it, I personally know some women who can.
This was a book I could read cover to cover and it is a page-turner. The imagery and character development makes this story into the beauty that it is. The friendship that develops between Nadia and Aubrey is beautiful and the way it ends as the book comes to an end, makes you feel like things could be okay.
I’ve dealt with older women in the church who were gossipy and that’s what they lived for. I think that’s a common theme in the black church. It’s also a reason I left the church.
If you have some time (though I highly suggest making the time), check this book out. The way it draws you in, you’ll go with no hesitation.
