Inspired by Alice in Wonderland
This month has brought a lot of new books to read and review! To make it easier for all of our readers we've compiled what people are saying about our favorite book this month! Read below to adventure with us into the wild wild west, Texas of course!
The humor is spot-on, as is the representation of the black diaspora; the opportunity for broader conversations about other topics is there, however, the uneven buildup of detailed, meaningful exchanges and the glibness of Norris’ voice detract. Despite some missteps, this will appeal to readers who enjoy a fresh and realistic teen voice.
Perfect read to start the new year!
I flat out adored this book. From page one I knew I wouldn't go to bed until I finished reading it because Norris is spectacular. He's a character I instantly loved.
Thankfully, this book is different and fresh - the focus isn’t really on the romance aspect.

I have picked my second read of the year, and it’s The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by @benphilippe. I’m only a few pages in, and our main character, Norris, has such a witty voice and I’m really looking forward to a few chuckles as he adapts to this new world he’s in. For those not in the know about what this book is about, it’s about a black French-Canadian teenager who has to move to Texas and starting again in a new school. The thing is though, the 3 things about his identity (Black, French, and Canadian) are things that he believes will not help him from watching American sitcoms. Making friends isn’t a huge priority, he just wants to get back to Canada (and a reasonable temperature, I’m sure.) I have heard so many good things about this book, and I am sure that this is going to be a great read. • Are there any books that you’ve recently put on your tbr list that you’ve heard a lot of good things about lately? • #book #books #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #diversebooks #weneedmorediversebooks #diversityinbooks #thefieldguidetothenorthamericanteenager #benphilippe #ya #youngadult #youngadultfiction #yafiction #contemporary #yacontemporary #indigoemployee
