Everyone should be taking notice of Renée Watson – she presents race, privilege, and family relationships with thoughtful and beautiful writing, with characters that readers will love and identify with, in a moment that calls for more diverse books.
In this 5-book collection we see a world that does not get enough shelf space in children’s literature - the experience of young African American women navigating contemporary life in character-driven stories about love, romantic and otherwise, and finding their space in the world.
Watch Us Rise- Two school friends find their blogs go viral when they start posting articles and videos online about women's rights.
Piecing Me Together - Jade believes she must get out of her poor neighbourhood, but can she change the views about race and social standing that the pupils at her new private school hold?
Some Places More than Others - Amara discovers more about her family, and ultimately herself, when she visits Grandpa Earl who lives in New York City.
What Momma Left Me - Serenity knows she is good at keeping secrets. Her mother is dead, her father is gone, and moving in with her grandparents means new friends, a new church, and a new school.
Love is a Revolution - When Nala reluctantly agrees to attend an open mic night, she falls instantly in love with Tye Brown, the MC. He's perfect, except Tye is an activist and Nala would rather watch movies on the sofa all summer...
