I'm in complete awe of this book. It's one of the best things I've read in recent memory. ( )

"The Blackness between the stars is the melanin in your skin. I read it in a book. I take it to mean that as Black folks we are limitless. That, maybe, our blackness holds our dreams, not just churches and Bibles?"

I finished this one earlier in the week and I am still basking in the glow of the magic in its pages. Junauda Petrus' writing skills are gold. I especially love the structure of the book because it wove in astrology, feminism, ancestral powers, magical realism, spirituality and healing, queer love and astronomy. She showed out with this treasure and reminds the world that Black people are magic PERIOD!

I loved the dual point of views of Audre and Mabel. Their characters had depth and I enjoyed their transformations and adjustments to their new situations. My heart broke for the abuse and eventual uprooting that Audrey faced for being a queer Trinidadian. Mabel's storyline was a gut punch very early on. I loved the exploration of their identities through books, horoscope and ancestral gifts of healing. Petrus made every scene on the page come alive. I know the ancestors approve because this book was an ode to the beauty and magic of Blackness and an offering to thank them for all their knowledge and talents.

Not only did this book have great quotes but it also expanded on interesting themes:

🌠 Family is sometimes made and not just blood ties.
🌌 Freedom starts in the mind and heart.
🌠 Black identity and feminism is magic and transcends what is seen.
🌌 Knowing yourself fully requires knowledge of all that ancestors have to teach.
🌠 To see the future, you may have to visit the past.
🌌 Trusting yourself and your inherent gifts is crucial to your identity.
🌠 Love is meant to be free, not boxed into categories.
🌌 Understanding multiple forms of spirituality help you experience humanity fully.
🌠 Blackness is limitless.
🌌 There is no place in the world for hate of any kind.
🌠 You have to be uprooted in order to bloom where you're supposed to.
🌌 Identity is a lifelong journey and not a linear pathway with only one option.
🌠 Books open minds, save lives & provide healing.
🌌 True healing is holistic.

This book will live in my heart forever. ( )
