Review

Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “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

★ Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “A breathtaking story about contemporary America that will serve as a mirror to some and a window for others, and it will stay with anyone who reads it.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “A poignant meditation on one girl’s struggle to find her way in a new world.” -- Nicola Yoon, New York Times bestselling author of The Sun is Also a Star and Everything, Everything

Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “Will reach young readers regardless of their background.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

★ Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “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)

★ “Each entry is deftly woven and full of such complex humanity that teens will identify with and see some of their own struggles in these characters... This collection presents the beauty of black humanity in all its many forms.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “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

★ “The stories, all worth savoring, share a celebratory outlook on black teenagers fully and courageously embracing life.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for AMERICAN STREET: “Zoboi urges us to examine the American dream to see if there is room within it to hold the ones we love.” -- Ebony Magazine

“Ibi Zoboi, author of National Book Award finalist American Street and Jane Austen update Pride, dazzles again with this stunning, marvelously diverse collection of 17 stories of the teen experience by black authors [writing] ‘about teens examining, rebelling against, embracing, or simply existing within their own idea of blackness.’” -- Buffalo News
