📚 Bookish Thoughts 📚 How do you thank the sun? Oh the rays of warmth on a bitter chilling day! It shines with no regard for whom upon; it is merely doing its job. Color Me In by @natashaerikadiaz is just a book. One story among many that means to entertain, and yet I feel that it was written just for me. While there was much that differed from the lead protagonist and my life story, the undertone of seeking a place in the world resonates. At a time in literature, when books are starting to take note of the brown female and tell her story, still none tells that of a Jew of Color struggling to find identity in this world (until now). This book is a coming of age story that gives a voice to acknowledging Shabbat with a whole lot of melanin! It addresses racism and bullying. It confronts mixed heritages and emotional instability. It showcases families and toxic friendships. It incorporates transliterations of the best of Hebrew prayers. It is everything one would want in a YA novel with lessons relevant to today’s seasoned adult. The characters, the setting, the plot, the ending…I adored it all! There is astounding wisdom in this novel, and while I do not regret dragging out my reading, I am saddened that it is over. Goodbye sunshine! 💋 xoxo, Kat P.S.
