American Street
    2018-02-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

On the corner of American Street and Joy Road, Fabiola Toussaint thought she would finally find une belle vie — a good life.

But after they leave Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Toussaint’s mother is detained* by U.S. immigration, leaving her to navigate* her loud American cousins, Chantal, Donna, and Princess; the grittiness of Detroit’s west side; a new school; and a surprising romance, all on her own.

Just as she finds her footing in this strange new world, a dangerous proposition* presents itself, and Toussaint soon realizes that freedom comes at a cost. Trapped at the crossroads of an impossible choice, will she pay the price for the American dream?

Toussaint’s story is at once sad and full of hope.

In her stunning* debut, Pushcart-nominated author Ibi Zoboi draws on her own experience as a young Haitian immigrant, infusing this lyrical exploration of America with magical realism and Vodou* culture. Unflinching* yet filled with joy, “American Street” is an evocative* and powerful coming-of-age story.

Filling her pages with magic, humanity, tragedy and hope, Zoboi builds up, takes apart, and then rebuilds an unforgettable story that will take root in readers’ hearts.

The book, a finalist for the U.S. National Book Award, is available at online bookstores like jd.com.
