For Black Girls Like Me by Mariama J Lockington In…
First Glance: Sing Like No One’s Listening
The cover is BEAUTIFUL and caught my eye immediately. The music notes, flowers, and colors.
I read the first chapter and already found myself unable to stop. This is a story of Nettie who has not been able to do the thing she loves and is good at, sing, since her mother has died a year ago. Her inner thoughts and turmoil in just the first few pages made my heart hurt for her. I can’t wait to read more.
