Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Calling My Name tells the coming-of-age story of an African American girl named Taja Brown growing up in a devout family in Houston, Texas. In fifty-three iridescent short chapters, Taja narrates her teenage years--from middle school to high school graduation--as she struggles to figure out life, love, and her own brand of spirituality. Taja's deeply felt voice, coupled with Liara Tamani's elegant and literary style, delivers a generous and thematically rich emotional wallop.
