Book Reviews

Below is a growing list of Summer's book reviews published in The Horn Book Magazine, which you can subscribe to here. Summer reviews books for young readers by authors from the Caribbean and its diaspora. She believes it's very important that books depicting underrepresented communities are reviewed by people who are members (cultural insiders) of those communities. She reads every book she reviews from beginning to end.
