This book. ❤️❤️❤️ Started last night, finished this morning.

@nicole_soojung, TY for writing these powerful words about family, race, and identity. I hope everyone reads this.

Ts, please add this to your clsrm libraries; I’m sure there are Ss who need it. #DisruptTexts
One reason we read stories is to find a way to reconcile all the parts of our own messy selves. Reading heals. Sometimes you read a book; then, inside, everything shifts, just a little. You can't help see your experiences in a new way; you reconsider who you are, who you'll be.
That's what reading this book was like for me.

And it makes me wonder (again) how often Ss have opportunities to read stories that specifically wrestle w/identity, race, family, & culture. Often, Ss grapple with identity but don't have the words to name what they're feeling...

Ss need thoughtful, well-written models of individuals grappling with the complexities of identity. Next week, Ss are reading these four identity #mentortexts as they write their own. #DisruptTexts #aplangchat

"Throughout the books, Katniss endures the unendurable. She is damaged & it shows. At times, it might seem like her suffering is gratuitous but life often presents unendurable circumstances people manage to survive. Only the details differ." #DisruptTexts…
