The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas | Book Review

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas seems like it is set to become one of the most talked about young adult books of the year. Certainly, it deserves shelf space alongside All American Boys. Thomas’s debut also takes on the hotly debated topic of police brutality and Black Lives Matter, although, the outcome is quite […]

Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson | Book Review

Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson is such an interesting, complex read. I fear it’s one that might get missed in the hype for other books.

Girl In The Blue Coat | Mirror In The Sky | The Memory Of Light
