Naomis Too: 12/30/19
Naomis Too by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich and Audrey Vernick is the sequel to Two Naomis. The Naomis are now sisters in a blended family. One is Black and one is white. They're going to a new school and having to field all sorts of rude questions and micro-aggressions.
This follow up didn't work for me. The back and forth points of view that flowed so naturally in the first book felt forced here.
Beyond the usual new school stuff, there were also all the annoying questions each girl was asked and the counseling sessions to make sure the family worked as a family despite the racial differences.
There was no down time. No time for the girls to just be themselves. The first book was fun while being thought provoking. This one wasn't. This one was a chore to read.
