A Good Kind of Trouble Reviews

  • Gillian
    Quick to read, hard to put down, and I can already tell that it will stay with me forever. I loved the story so much. Shayla (and her friends & family) are wonderful characters. The writing is honest and perfectly true-to-life, and also very funny at times. I consider it a MUST READ, both for its fr...

    Really cool way of showing how younger teens can engage in social justice (and how adults are always trying to tell them to be nice and also ignore their voices). Loved Shayla’s parents - encouraging her to use her voice. ...
  • Suzanne Morrone
    This is a wonderful book about a girl who doesn’t want to get in trouble. She is black and her best friends are Japanese and Puerto Rican. They call themselves The United Nations. But set against the backdrop of Black Lives Matter, and the discussion of race stereotyping, of why black people ma...

    As a multiracial girl who grew up feeling like I wasn't enough of anything, I wish I had this book to know I wasn't alone. As Shayla navigates her existence as a young Black woman in America, she is forced to come to terms with the inherent racism ingrained in the US school systems, prejudices withi...

    I couldn't put this book down, and was so excited to be able to read it! I cannot wait for it to be released and to own a physical copy! It was a great coming of age middle grade novel! There were so many layers to it and you should all already have this preordered!...

    I love this middlegrade so much! Shayla reminds me a lot of me as a kid: quiet, almost desperate not to get in trouble and sticking close to a group of friends. But, like a lot of us learn, she starts to see that maybe there are things that are worse than getting in trouble. It's important to care a...

    E ARC from Edelweiss PlusShayla is a good kid who doesn't like to be in trouble. Her older sister, Hana, is outspoken and interested in protests, but not Shayla. She's the kind of kid who will pick up a desk that has been knocked over by someone else so the her teacher doesn't get upset with the cla...

    This book wasn't quite what I was expecting it to be but I really enjoyed it! It's a pretty quiet book about a young black girl who is learning to navigate the world around her and understanding that blackness can come with its own set of burdens that other people don't have to deal with. There's a ...

    A Good Kind of Trouble attempted to do what The Hate U Give did for the YA audience—explore race issues, and race tensions but for an even younger audience.But, like, THUG, it barely scratched the surface. Unlike, THUG, however, it being tamer made sense, considering the age of the intended aud...
