Why Am I Waiting?
I’m interested to see just how the author will pull this story off. Stories like this don’t come about too often, and since everyone is screaming for diversity, I can’t wait to see how readers take to it. It looks really interesting, and I’m all about POC protagonists. What book are you waiting on this week?
