'THIS BOOK IS SO FUN AND HOT AND EXCEPTIONALLY WRITTEN!!' Reader review,⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 'I melted into this book and loved every minute of it – if you're looking for a contemporary story of a queer black girl finding herself, you'll love this' Reader review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 'Homebodies is so many different things. Political and social commentary, romance, drama, journey to self-discovery— it's the story of a young queer Black woman caught up in the whirlwind of everything life can throw at you' Reader review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 'Quiet, complex, vulnerable ... it's really powerful to show a raw, relatable character trying to decide if the career she's worked toward for her entire life is worth the pain it causes her' Reader review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ * * * * She's stayed quiet for too long. Now it's time to speak her truth. Until twenty-four hours ago, Mickey Hayward was living the life she'd always dreamed of. She was working for a popular media company, and she was in a committed loving relationship. Now she's fired, tossed aside for a younger, more 'agreeable' Black writer. Sick of being overlooked, she responds with an online letter detailing the racism she's faced within the industry. And when a media scandal turns Mickey's post into a viral sensation, suddenly everyone wants to hear what she has to say. That's what Mickey has always wanted – isn't it? Don't miss this incredibly witty, intimate, and moving debut. Perfect if you love: ❤️Coming of age ❤️Old flame ❤️Love triangle ❤️City girl/small hometown * * * * Praise for Tembe Denton-Hurst 'I saw so much of myself in her utterly delicious and sometimes aching story' Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, author of the New York Times bestselling The Love Songs of W.E.B. DuBois 'Denton-Hurst has written a warm, brilliant novel that's stunning and poignant; Homebodies is wonderfully witty and full of empathy and entirely original' Bryan Washington, award-winning author of Memorial and Lot 'A gorgeous and compulsively readable coming-of-age story about a young, Black, queer writer trying to figure out her purpose and her identity' Vogue
