Reading prompt #16: A book published in 2017


This book is so f*cking good.  

“Your mom is your blood and bone before your body even knows how to make any.”

This. This quote, it settled in my heart and has not left my head. For days. It’s simple and perfect and so true of motherhood. That Ms. Koul has the talent to put words to this truth is astounding. It makes me so jealous of her talent. 

Go read this book. Support a Canadian woman. Learn about her experiences as the child of immigrants, what it’s like to have her skin, her hair. Recognize your own privilege and then look around you. Where can you give a hand up?
