Bookseller Recommendation

For Black Girls Like Me

“Imani Parks's voice introduces listeners to Makeda, an eleven-year-old black girl who was adopted by a white family as an infant. We listen to the challenges Makeda faces as her life is uprooted and she has to leave behind her best friend, Lena, the only other adopted black girl she knows, and also the only person who Makeda feels fully understands her. Things become more complicated when Papa leaves for the summer due to work, leaving Makeda and her older sister home with Mama, who we can hear in the strain of her voice is experiencing challenges of her own. Parks's narration has a youthful quality, convincingly capturing the wide range of emotions Makeda works through over the course of this tender coming-of-age story.”
