"Unflinchingly irreverent, laugh-out-loud funny, and heartbreakingly honest." --Elizabeth Acevedo, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author of The Poet XIn the vein of powerful reads like The Hate U Give and The Poet X, comes poet Morgan Parker's pitch-perfect novel about a black teenage girl searching for her identity when the world around her views her depression as a lack of faith and blackness as something to be politely ignored. Trapped in sunny, stifling, small-town suburbia, seventeen-year-old Morgan knows why she's in therapy. She can't count the number of times she's been the only non-white person at the sleepover, been teased for her "weird" outfits, and been told she's not "really" black. Also, she's spent most of her summer crying in bed. So there's that, too. Lately, it feels like the whole world is listening to the same terrible track on repeat--and it's telling them how to feel, who to vote for, what to believe. Morgan wonders, when can she turn this song off and begin living for herself? Loosely based on her own teenage life and diaries, this incredible debut by award-winning poet Morgan Parker will make readers stand up and cheer for a girl brave enough to live life on her own terms--and for themselves."Morgan Parker put THIS song on--and I hope it never turns off." --Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Odd One Out "A triumphant first impression in the YA space." --Entertainment Weekly "An incredibly heartfelt, deep story about a girl's coming of age." --Refinery29Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Morgan ParkerPublisher: Delacorte PressPublished: 09/24/2019ISBN: 9780525707516Pages: 336Weight: 1.00lbsSize: 8.70h x 5.90w x 1.30dReview Citations: School Library Journal 07/01/2019 pg. 50Kirkus Reviews 07/15/2019 pg. 173Publishers Weekly 07/22/2019Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 09/01/2019Booklist 09/01/2019 pg. 105Voice of Youth Advocates 10/01/2019 - Recommended - ReadableHorn Book Magazine 01/01/2020 pg. 95
