This month, I had the pleasure of creating a booklist of novels that embody the theme of the black child in Britain: family, friendship and overcoming challenges for Shepherd.com , a website that is providing a new way to discover books online. I was restricted to five books, so though I could have reviewed many titles, these are the five I chose.
Check out the reviews by clicking on the link https://shepherd.com/best-books/stories-about-the-black-child-in-britain.
Of course, as well as the five books I reviewed, I had to write something about my novel. Looking Up is about the highs and lows of 13 year old Esi after she moves from Ghana to live with her estranged mother in London, England. Essentially, it is about family, friendship and overcoming challenges from the perspective of a black tween.
See if you agree with my reviews when you have had a look. Cheers!
