"Where is my bookmark? Which audiobook are my headphones plugged into?"
I am reading "The Kitchen God's Wife" by Amy Tan. It is one of the books I picked up last week during my trip to the Los Angeles Public Library. I am finding a rhythm with the story and anticipating what the secret is that Pearl's mother is holding.
I am listening to "Pushout" by Monique W. Morris. The book is about the criminalization of black girls and the policies that drive black girls away from school and into unsafe and unstable environments. The book also outlines ways to rectify the systemic actions. I like that the book has few statistics and is written with poetic tones. The personal stories astonishingly drive the thesis of the book.
