ABOUT THE BOOK:
This month’s contemporary read is just So. Stinking. Cute. Fans of coming-of-age stories, romances filled with witty dialogue, and humor will fall in love with this funny, down-to-earth story of the pressures, struggles, and hustle of a first-generation.
This Black #inownvoices narrative follows a popular senior at an elite high school who’s family, home, and life are drastically different from those of his wealthy, affluent peers. And yet the same grand expectations of academic success, an Ivy League college education, and a promising future are still placed on our hero’s shoulders—by his school, his loving family, and, most of all, himself. He uses his winning personality to hide his ambition and his fear of failure. But when a classmate threatens to expose his less-than-legitimate side hustle, our main character learns that some people see his most authentic self—the boy behind The Smile—and love him for it.
The heart of this book is its characters. Each one is quirky and alive, with their own unique voice. They’re also relatable, insanely human and vulnerable. They make assumptions and mistakes, they stumble and sometimes they crash and burn. But more than anything, they will charm the pants off you.
MERCH IN THE BOX:
This month we're working with Black small businesses and artists to bring you a selection of merch to celebrate books and diversity. Our fandom item will be from Lord of The Rings.
Please note: this box will have fewer items than usual because the cost will be more to work with US based, small businesses whose items are not produced in China. Fewer items does not mean lower value. Rather, we are putting money directly into the hands of Black Americans creators and artist and are supporting their small business venture rather than a mass factory overseas. We will NOT have a collectable comic strip for the month of September so we can allocate that budget to the Black vendors in our boxes.
We will include a full bio for each of our vendors so that you may learn more about them.
This is a late release book so boxes will ship September 29th through October 2nd.
PLEASE NOTE ABOUT ORDERING MULTIPLE BOXES: If you order more than one box or item, everything will ship together with the latest item shipping out. Shipment is calculated as combined shipping into a single package. If you prefer items to ship as soon as available, then please purchase separately. Otherwise, items go out with the latest dated shipment.
