At this point, I can’t remember who told me about The Stars and the Blackness Between Them, but likely I saw it on Instagram.
If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I read stories from perspectives of mostly marginalized voices and that any story about queer Black kids (because I was a queer Black kid) is at the top of my list.
The Stars and the Blackness Between Them was one of my birthday books. I purchased a copy for myself and for a friend whose birthday is two days before mine. There were a few books ahead of it on my TBR, but I’m pleased to get to it now.
I begin my reading with copies in all three formats: physical book, ebook, and audiobook. This means I can read the physical book when I’m at home, the ebook on Monday when I don’t drive the carpool, and listen to the audiobook the rest of the time. I’m also gearing up for the 2019 NCTE National Convention, so if I don’t finish by Tuesday, it’ll be my travel book.
