Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self
The young ladies in Danielle Evans' bedazzling collection of short stories may not always respond valiantly to racism or their own insecurity for that matter, but they do have the courage to stare at both dead in the face. Equal parts humor and personal revelation, Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self takes us into the minds of protagonists whom society has left out and has not bothered to observe their struggle to fit back in.
