I’ll be frank here, I’m not sure how I feel about the first book on this list. I feel as though it has the potential to be a really well-handled and addressed commentary on racism, but I also can see where it has the potential to fail miserably. And I’m worried, but I also want to know for myself where the story is going to go. The second book, I’m much more confident about. I definitely think it’s going to be a well-written and useful book for young people and I’m excited to read it.
A book that tackles racism. I’ll be honest, I’m skeptical about how well the content will be handled, but I’m willing to give it a shot.
Do either of these NetGalley books tempt you to request? Let me know in the comments!
