I am super excited for the release of Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk and Nicola Yoon. This book of stories centers Black teenage love and I am here for it! I remember when Nic Stone shared that this collaboration was going to happen at the 2020 NCTE Convention and I was immediately intrigued.
Here is a quick synopsis from GoodReads:
“A summer heatwave blankets New York City in darkness. But as the city is thrown into confusion, a different kind of electricity sparks…
A first meeting.
And maybe the beginning of something new.
When the lights go out, people reveal hidden truths. Love blossoms, friendship transforms, and new possibilities take flight.”
