There have been a number of good pieces about the new novel When We Was Fierce by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo this week. If you haven’t heard anything about it, I’d suggest starting with this Kirkus review, followed quickly by this thought piece. Once you’ve absorbed those two and are ready for an in depth analysis, try this piece. And honestly, God speed to the publishing industry in working through these issues.
For a palate cleanser, you can read Brendan Kiely’s and Jason Reynolds’s CSK Author Honor Speeches for All American Boys.
