Love is a Revolution ARC

4 stars of 5

Love is a Revolution by Renee Watson

Love is a Revolution written by Renee Watson is centered around Nala Robertson, a young woman exploring her identity. On an open mic night at her cousin’s birthday party, Nala meets the perfect boy, Tye Brown. As the two grow closer together, Nala begins to lie about her passions and her identity. The novel follows Nala’s life and relationships with her friends, family, and Tye. One of my favorite components of this novel is the character development.In the beginning of the book Watson describes a standard family living a relatively normal life. However, as the novel progresses, you can see the underlying issues and the tension increasing between the family members. This novel evokes several emotions, making it the perfect combination of romance and reality.

Where the Rhythm Takes You

4 stars of 5

Review by Sweksha

Where the Rhythm Takes You by Sarah Dass

Where the Rhythm Takes You, written by Sarah Dass, is a captivating story about two estranged childhood best friends. The story starts off with context about the main character, Reyna, her best friend, Aiden, and their relationship. Throughout the story, you see the events that transpired in the past between these two characters and how it changed them in the future. One thing I really liked about this book is that the main character, Reyna, was really relatable. She was focused on making her parents happy andshe prioritized their happiness over her own, which I think is something most people can relate to. I also liked how the author incorporated snippets from the past because it evoked a lot of emotion and also strengthened the plot of the overall story.
