17-year-old Morgan is a black teen triumphantly figuring out her identity when her conservative town deems 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 shes in therapy. She cant count the number of times shes been the only non-white person at the sleepover, been teased for her weird outfits, and been told shes not really black. Also, shes spent most of her summer crying in bed. So theres that, too.
Lately, it feels like the whole world is listening to the same terrible track on repeat—and its 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.
