A tender tribute to love, grief, Blackness, family, dancing, cooking, hip hop, jazz, and home! Nelson builds crescendos of self contemplation amidst moments of forced reckonings that embody the uncertainty and wonder of growing up, falling in love, starting anew, being lost, losing people, knowing home, and upending one's soul. It's not until the last few pages that my heart fully wraps around the words I've been given and from there I sit in awe of the small world into which I was invited.
