American Street by Ibi Zoboi
It will be released on February 14, 2017 by Balzer + Bray.
This is a story about immigration, life, family, school, friends. I can’t wait to read this book.
The cover, seriously. It’s so beautiful. This year is the year of beautiful covers.
On the corner of American Street and Joy Road, Fabiola Toussaint thought she would finally find une belle vie — a good life.
But after they leave Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Fabiola’s mother is detained by U.S. immigration, leaving Fabiola to navigate her loud American cousins, Chantal, Donna, and Princess; the grittiness of Detroit’s west side; a new school; and a surprising romance, all on her own.
Just as she finds her footing in this strange new world, a dangerous proposition presents itself, and Fabiola soon realizes that freedom comes at a cost. Trapped at the crossroads of an impossible choice, will she pay the price for the American dream?
