New to the Genre


I am a new reader to the YA/fantasy/Afro-futurism genre, I chose to read this title not just strictly out of curiosity but because I don't have the tightest relationship with my pre-teen daughter being that we live in different states. In an attempt to build a stronger bond I got her a copy of this book and got myself a copy and figured we would talk about it after reading it. She is probably miles ahead of me in reading and on to book two, I have to admit it took me forever to finish this book lol. My assessment as a first-time reader is that I found it spectacular Ms. Adeyemi does a great job of creating this world it was like watching a movie I had skepticism about reading it but glad that I did I love this magical world that she created about these mystical kids going against all odds to fight for something that believed in. It had classism and romance etched into the story as well. I am on to book 2 now!
