Product description


''Mixing gritty street life with the tenderness of first love, Haitian Vodou, and family bonds, the book is at once chilling, evocative, and reaffirming.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''Filling her pages with magic, humanity, tragedy, and hope, Zoboi builds up, takes apart, and then rebuilds an unforgettable story. This book will take root in readers' hearts.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''A poignant meditation on one girl's struggle to find her way in a new world.'' --Nicola Yoon, bestselling author of EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING

''Brimming with culture, magic, warmth, and unabashed rawness, American Street is ultimately a blistering tale of humanity. This is Manchild in the Promised Land, for a new generation, and a remarkable debut from Zoboi, who without question is an inevitable force in storytelling.'' --Jason Reynolds, award-winning co-author of ALL AMERICAN BOYS

''Zoboi's nascent storytelling gifts ensnare from page one. To this spellbinding voice of the next generation, I bow.'' --Rita Williams-Garcia, New York Times bestselling author and three-time winner of the Coretta Scott King Award

''Zoboi's stunning debut intertwines mysticism and love with grit and violence...Fierce and beautiful.'' --Booklist (starred review)
