This is a really beautiful memoir about a Black boy navigating a rough upbringing and leaning on various "geek" comforts to get through. Even if you don't like anime, Pokémon or video games yourself, you can still appreciate the way they formed a world in which Joey could feel safe and in control. This is a really impactful piece of writing, one which fills a gap in the literary world and asks readers to consider what we lose by undervaluing both Black boyhood and nerd culture.
