A story of self Discovery
Kenya lives in a foster care home where she doesn’t fit in. When she befriends a girl named Stella, her tiny community begins to change, causing Kenya to question herself, and who she wants to be.
I jolted out of my seat, lunging at Emily prepared to take a swing when Tye grabbed me from behind. Spooked, my shoulders shook uncertain of what he would do to me. Stella seized my arm, pulling me out of his grasp.
“Get the Hell out of here!” I shouted my heart now in my throat.
“We have every right to be here! More than that thing sitting beside you,” Tye hollered.
“She is not a thing! Stella is a person with feelings, emotions, and needs like everyone else,” I shot back.

“Kenya is a beautiful story about a girl who struggles to be herself, when others want to put her down. Her story is heartwarming and you find yourself cheering for her by the end of it. This novel is well paced and treats the LGBTQ community with the respect it deserves. I very much enjoyed reading it.”-Annie Langworthy
