It's summer in New York, and unlike her sister-cousin-friend Imani, Nala doesn't have big plans. Mainly she wants to hang out with her grandma, try out new hairstyles, and, oh yeah, find love. When she gets dragged along to an Inspire Harlem event and lays eyes on Tye, "find love" seems possible - but right away she pretends to be more like him and the other Inspire Harlem activists than she really is. By the time she finds out that Tye hates lies, it's already too late. Or is it?

Though she doesn't think of herself as an activist, Nala's heart is in the right place; she truly values spending time with her family and her community, while Imani's activism takes her away from home and family. At the same time, Imani has complicated feelings about Nala living with her and sharing her parents. After a blow-up, the sister-cousin-friends make up, and Nala gets to figure out her relationship with Tye on her own terms.

Traditional coming-of-age, identity-building themes in a vibrant Harlem summertime setting - oh, and there's ice cream. A cool treat for teen readers.

Quotes (from ARC)

...activists...sometimes feels like a word that means their opinion is the only one that matters. (6)

"and what the mirror whispers is:
girl you are exquisite" (Blue playlist, track 5, p. 95)

"Nala, we're just saying that a person can be so busy trying to care for their community that they don't even have time to care for the people closest to them." (Grandma, 99)

"...sometimes I feel like a burden to the people who are supposed to love me..." (Nala to Tye, 131)

Quotes on Imani's wall: Michelle Obama, Fannie Lou Hamer, Audre Lorde (153)

I guess when you feel like you're not good enough, the next best thing is trying to be like someone else. (176)

Uncle Randy always says, when you're feeling bad about your circumstance you should do something kind for someone. (203)

"You apologized, right? ...You've got to let people forgive you." (JT to Nala, 250)

I think people give the type of gifts they want to receive... (252)

How do you know if you're doing something for yourself or someone else? (265) ( )

RGG: Such a good read! Identity, romance, social justice--in that order--engaging, compelling, and not didatic! Highly recommended for teenage girls! Reading Interest: 13-15.

Watson delivers a thought-provoking, tender love story in this young adult novel. Over the course of a summer, Nala feels herself drifting away from her cousin-sister-friend and toward a new boy in her neighborhood. To impress him, she pretends to be someone she not. I spent much of the novel anxious about the moment when her lies would unravel. The message that before you can love others, you need to love yourself is subtly delivered. I especially appreciated that while Nala is a big girl, it is not her fatness that gets in the way of her loving herself. She loves her body; there are other aspects of herself that she needs to learn to love.
