    I almost gave up on this book towards the beginning but I decided to keep going and I'm glad I did I love the topics is covers but I think it suffers from trying to cover too much in too short of a book The plot feels a bit rushed to me and it would've been nice if this book was longer so it could've developed a little bit

pay the price for the American drea The teachers know my story They know our story the Three Bees No The four beesChantal is brainsDonna is beautyPri is brawnI am brave No one has to tell me this I know it for myself As Ibi Zoboi s debut novel bringing a fictional story that can be relatable to her was something different She managed to captivate me from the beginning because the story is different but it was also a different kind of boring It s not magical but it s miraculous It s a story that can touch an immigrants heart because one can relate to the main character in many ways I m not an immigrant but my parents are and I m sure they are able to relate to Fabiola s character She had to get accustomed to the culture and traditions of Detroit and she found it to be very different than where she is from and what she is used to Although she was born in US and could speak English as if she was fluent she still had trouble finding herself in this country and realizing that there really isn t an American Dream for her to dream after all American Street by Ibi Zoboi stars off with Fabiola and her mother about to come to Detroit from Haiti Fabiola Toussaint was born in America but has spent most of her years with her mother in Haiti where she is from When the two decide to come to Detroit to visit her mother s sister Aunt Jo there seems to be a problem Fabiola is allowed to pass through security and get on the plane to go to Detroit but her mother is stopped and not allowed to travel with Fabiola Although Fabiola had to get to Detroit alone without her mother since that was what her mother wanted for her she still has fear inside of her for her mother has a hard time getting used to the new country she is living in accepting the fact that her family isn t complete because her mother isn t there and realizing that America isn t what she thought it would be It only reminds her a little of her little town in Haiti Port au PrinceLike I said I was intrigued when I first started reading this because Fabiola had to travel alone and was trying to figure out what to do when her mother got detained I couldn t really connect to Fabiola s character since I m not an immigrant although I come from an immigrant family Does that make me an immigrant I was born in America but my parents both migrated from El Salvador so and it was hard seeing her struggle with her new family and feel like she was alone She was a different character from most that I read about realistic but she didn t feel real to me I thought she would act different and I can see where she s coming from finding out that her mother might just be sent back to Haiti while she was in Detroit about to get the all known American education and living in the great so called America but I had trouble connecting with her I expected her to change in ways and although she did thanks to her cousins Pri Princess Donna Primadonna and Chantal I thought she was gonna end up trying to find herself in this new country and find ways to bring her mother to this state She didn t She hung out with her cousins and even became a little famous like them meeting her cousin s boyfriend and meeting someone herself that she ended up falling in love with Fabiola wasn t boring but she also wasn t a fascinating character I actually found her to be interesting because of the way she would act around her cousins and aunt but then I got a little tired of her and couldn t bear to see her moving onWhen I first read the synopsis for this I thought this was actually gonna deal with immigration which is why I bought the book in the first place but it really didn t Fabiola kind of moved on although she was still worried about her mother and wondered where she was tried to do some things that could bring her mother to her but there wasn t much immigration involved With all this trouble immigrants are having and the fear going around America I expected this to be similar something like immigrants being scared because they would be worried about being deported or something Although the synopsis does mention how Fabiola has to get used to the new culture she s living in and this new state and family she has to grow accustomed to I couldn t pick up the pace the novel was going through and the struggles Fabiola was going through Fabiola changed a little too uick and uite immensely Her boyfriend Kasim became a small distraction of her because she even gave up on finding ways to look for her mother since she was focused on Kasim and Kasim only Her cousins brought their own world to her and she also got a little too stuck on them but I couldn t blame her Donna brought her abusive and alcoholic boyfriend Dray into Fabiola s world and it was all a mess Aunt Jo didn t really try to bring her sister back even when she said she was or maybe she did but I missed it I do admit though her cousins were part of my favorites in this novel They were strong and vicious and they didn t miss those spots The worst described them and no one messed with them unless you were Dray or some bitch that couldn t care about what any of them could do They were royalty at their school and I agree and they were also very supportive and caring about Fabiola and her actions choices and school life They were they for her and I loved that In the beginning it might seem as if they don t care about Fabiola but really they love her like if she was a sister to them They treat her like a sister and not a cousin They protect her uickly and hugely and don t want anyone checking her out or trying to get with her but although Kasim was able to they re happy for her because she met someone Although this book hasn t lived up to so much hype it was a powerful novel that could be relatable to so many people out there It isn t heartbreaking in any way but it can seem since Fabiola doesn t have her mother with her This book isn t about love or heartbreaks or cheesy relationshipsfriendships but instead it s about young people trying to find the way they lost The Book Of Robert E Howard realizes that freedom comes at a cost Trapped at the crossroads of an

Ola’s mother is detained by US immigration leaving Fabiola to navigate her loud American cousins Chantal Donna and Princess; the grittiness of Detroit’s west side; a new school; and a surprising romance all on her ownJust as she Oh wow this was so good and just a little bit like running face first into a brick wall of EMOTIONS I n not even sure what to do with myself right now aughiagh It s a really powerful story of immigration and poverty and family It s a brutal and messy story and the ending left me reeling The emphasis on family was the best of everLike this is not a nice family particularly but I loved how complex they all were Fabiola has immigrated from Haiti to America to live with her cousins Her mum gets caught up in customs and sent to a detention centre so Fabiola is basically just THROWN into American culture I felt for her so much Her three cousins are all around her age and they immediately just adopt her as their 4th sister But they do live in a poor part of town and they re mixed up in a LOT of stuff Donna s boyfriend is like Such Bad News and hits her and Pri is closet ueer and Chantal has STUFF going on and like their aunt is a loan shark and just Fabiola truly gets thrown into it But seriously her cousins can be absolutely horrible at timesand then really nice Fabiola is also really precious and sweetI was worried she d be a passive character because of that BUT SHE S NOT I also loved how she really wanted to make America her home But she didn t give up her Haitian heritage There s like a bit of magic in the book lowkey I wouldn t call it magical realism because she firmly believes in Vodou and her culture is woven into everything she does It s so good Also the author s note says this is all out of her own experiences too I basically couldn t stop readingAnd the story just got brutal and twisted as it went along Like the plot is really tight and I loved how it woven things together at the end And by love I mean HELLO I AM SCREAMING WHY DID YOU DO THAT So in summary it has complex and dynamic female friendships rich cultural influences the absolute sweetest romance ever between Fabiola and Kasim 3 it s really gritty and dark and is not messing about with telling you what life is like lots of people are awful there s whispers of belief in magic and PAIN My actual only reserve is that I think the writing style has room to growIt was really good don t get me wrong but I just think it could ve been a bit deeper at times and smoother This is only a debut too so I imagine great things for this authorALL IN ALL A purely excellent ownvoices story that doesn t shy away from showing how complicated and brutal life can be It s not an easy read although it is uite fast and there were so many times I was raging with Fabiola Argh Her situation is often a trainwreck but I loved her character arc and also her love of her culture Also I would 500% be there for the traditional Haitian way she cooked the Thanksgiving meal Yes please
