Discussion: I'd Read That!


This Week’s Topic: 
A minor character, who NEEDS their own story

Dani at Perspective of a Writer hosts the meme I Heart Characters, which is a way for people to feature their favorite characters. I often fall in love with minor characters, and couldn't wait to share one I believe needs her own story.

Reviews: And They Both Got Into Harvard!

I was really surprised to read two books, back-to-back, where a character in the book gets into Harvard. The school has like a 6% acceptance rate, but you know, this is fiction. Regardless of the Harvard thing, I really enjoyed both these books. There were a ton of feels to go around, and both left me feeling rather happy in the end.

Candice Montgomery
Series: n/a
Release Date: October 16, 2018
Publisher: Page Street Publishing
Waited on by: Sam
Tasia Quirk is young, Black, and badass. She's a senior, she's got great friends, and a supportive and wealthy family. She even plays football as the only girl on her private high school's team.

But when a mysterious box arrives, family secrets spill out, and her identity is suddenly called into question. The box is filled with mementos from Tasia’s life, including a birth certificate with a blank paternity line and a photo of her mom in the arms of some white dude... who looks kinda like her. Turns out, the man she always thought was her father isn't. Her brother is really her half-brother. And she's actually bi-racial. ​

Tasia is determined to unravel the lies that have overtaken her life. Which means priority #1 is tracking down her bio dad. Along the way, Tasia discovers that forgiveness is more than an eleven-letter word, and there's a fee for answers. The artsy bisexual boy living with her new grandparents wants to help her find them—if she can stop fighting who she is, beyond the color of her skin.
