Has anyone read an ARC of this book? I just saw this cover floating around a diverse book article I was reading at was instantly drawn to the cover. Luckily the synopsis sounds just as wonderful.
Out February 14th, this sounds like the kind of book you can dive heart first into. I’ve already added it to my TBR, will you be?
Jade believes she must get out of her neighborhood if she’s ever going to succeed. Her mother says she has to take every opportunity. She has. She accepted a scholarship to a mostly-white private school and even Saturday morning test prep opportunities. But some opportunities feel more demeaning than helpful. Like an invitation to join Women to Women, a mentorship program for “at-risk” girls. Except really, it’s for black girls. From “bad” neighborhoods. But Jade doesn’t need support. And just because her mentor is black doesn’t mean she understands Jade. And maybe there are some things Jade could show these successful women about the real world and finding ways to make a real difference.
