Publisher's Summary

Calling My Name, by debut author Liara Tamani, is a striking, luminous, and literary exploration of family, spirituality, and self - ideal for listeners of Jacqueline Woodson, Jandy Nelson, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Sandra Cisneros.
This unforgettable novel tells a universal coming-of-age story about Taja Brown, a young African American girl growing up in Houston, Texas. It deftly and beautifully explores the universal struggles of growing up, battling family expectations, discovering a sense of self, and finding a unique voice and purpose.
Told in 53 short, episodic, moving, and iridescent chapters, Calling My Name follows Taja on her journey from middle school to high school. Literary and noteworthy, this is a beauty of a novel that deftly captures the multifaceted struggle of finding where you belong and why you matter.

Real Gem

Couldn't stop listening! LOVE how the simplicity of this story so beautifully breaks Black girl stereotypes. Not set in slavery or in the hood. Not a tragedy to be saved or a problem to be solved. Just a girl coming of age into a spiritual awakening. The narrator's voice is also so beautiful.
