A review by owlmybookandplanneradventures
American Street, by Ibi Zoboi

emotional hopeful inspiring sad medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


This is a deeply moving own voices debut book about the struggles of an immigrant to identify as American & Haitian. The twist & turns, magical realism, and the range of emotions I felt enhanced the story & my experience.
