Staff Reviews

Enchanted wants nothing more than to sing, and those ambitions begin to feel within reach when she attracts the attention of a famous R&B singer at an audition and gets drawn into his world. But their chance meeting, which seems like a dream come true, leads to an abusive and controlling relationship that ultimately has devastating consequences. If you love a YA thriller (as I do), Grown is an exceptional addition to the genre that deftly tackles rape culture and misogynoir in the music industry and American society more broadly. It’s tense, enraging, and completely engrossing from beginning to end.

“Tiffany Jackson has truly outdone herself with Grown, which is saying a lot as we’ve come to know her as one of the most brilliant storytellers in YA. But without a doubt, Grown hits at a new level. This novel is one of the most important, relevant, and utterly compelling stories of the year. It is a sharp-edged tale that both teens and adults should make space for in their to-be-read piles this year before it makes all of the award lists in the spring! Believe Black girls. Protect Black girls.”
