ANGIE THOMAS!!! I am definitely in love with your words.This story follows, Bri Jackson, who, like Starr from THUG, lives in the neighborhood of Garden Heights.
Bri 's mother, a recovering addict with over 5-years sobriety, is doing her best to be unable to provide for her children alone, but it 's tough.Bri has plans to follow in her ather 's footsteps and she decides to do it her own ay.
Troubles at school, troubles with bills, being behind in rent and she feels obligate to do anything to ake it different.I loved this story.
Bri was struggling with some heavy shit and she let it get the best of her sometimes but that happens when you hav a kid.I liked how his book relied on a myria of hard-hitting issues that can also be brushed over or ignored.
he reality of living in poverty is something that millions of Americans, and people around the world, deal with on a aily basis, and while it is n't pretty, it is mportant to shine light on and discuss.Examples: the fact that Bri 's mom as a recovering addict.
Another way Bri, and other black and brown kids, were treated at her colleg.
The lifestyle Bri 's aunt lives and how hat affects her entire family.
