Biografia breu
Ibi Zoboi is the New York Times Bestselling author of American Street, a National Book Award finalist, Pride, a contemporary remix of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and a middle-grade debut, My Life as an Ice Cream Sandwich. She is the editor of Black Enough: Stories of Being Young and Black in America. She co-authored the Walter Award and L.A. Times Book Prize-winning novel-in-verse, Punching the Air, with Exonerated Five member, Yusef Salaam. Her debut picture book, The People Remember, received a Coretta Scott King Honor Award. Her most recent books include Star Child: A Biographical Constellation of Octavia Estelle Butler, and Okoye to the People: A Black Panther Novel for Marvel. Ibi lives in New Jersey with her husband, a high school art teacher, and their three teenage children.



This was required reading for my son and after talking to him about it I decided to read it for myself. I am a sucker for a good Pride and Prejudice rendition, so I had high hopes. Sadly, it was a major let down and I honestly wouldn’t have finished had my son not needed my help with his report.

Zuri’s attitude grated on my nerves to the point that I caught myself groaning with annoyance on more than one occasion. She comes across as extremely crass and judgmental, which bothered me a lot while I was reading. There is even a part where she actually admits to herself that she’s being judgmental! You think?? The only thing that redeemed Zuri for me was her poetry. The girl could write, and I enjoyed these moments that were sprinkled throughout the story, most likely because her snarky sour sass attitude was better articulated and wasn’t full of malice and shade.

The last quarter of the book was the best and truly what redeemed this novel for me. Once Zuri got over herself and started growing that’s when I started hearing her voice. Before this, her voice was so screeching that I couldn’t take this young girl seriously. Take the prejudice and judgmental statements out of it and I think I’d like it a lot better. The author seems like she could be a decent writer, but with how it’s obvious she has an agenda I would be scared to take a chance on another one of her stories.

This is a tale that has been told so many times throughout the years, and truth be told there is better out there. This was a painful journey to nowhere and this is time I can never get back. The only true positive is that my son got a passing grade on his report.

I think this story could be told to primary students, but it would be read by intermediate to middle school students. This is the story of Octavia Butler and how she got into being a writer as well as the historical events that she experienced growing up.

From Kirkus: "Zoboi’s poetic retrospective breathes life into Black history narratives and reverently celebrates Black lives."
