This debut collection is a complicated love letter to Washington, DC, and to those who call it home: a TSA agent who’s never flown, a girl braving new worlds to play piano, and a teacher caught up in a mayoral race. These characters navigate life’s “training school”―with lessons on gentrification and respectability—and fight to create their own sense of space and self.

A compilation of short stories about Black girls being education in the DMV area and stereotypes. Girls growing up in single parent households, two parents households, interracial relationships and so much more. Girls wanting to know if they made their father proud or mattered while their moms went above and beyond and did any and everything for them. Men cheating on their wives and abandoning their familes. It wasn't nothing I never heard off, quite familiar. #Book46of2020 #bookworm #whatsnext
