This one was all over my Twitter timeline not long after it came out. When I found the Barnes & Noble card that I’d lost way back in September, this is one of the books I bought.
#bookaday My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalastier. Can I start by saying that I loved the diverse representation in this nove? It was effortlessly done and at no point felt didactic. Sojourner, who happened to be Che's love interest, was all at once black, the daughter of lesbians, a Christian, and a boxer. And the conversations Sojourner and CHe had about religion felt authentic. The friends of Che's parents were rich, but not annoyingly so. Also, their kids are half Korean. And that's not all. So diversity? BAM. I'd say that it wasn't as creepy as I expected it to be, but it was definitely awesome. #bookstagram #stickynotereviews #snrtbs #blackbookblogger
