Book Review Alert: Talitha Koum! Girl Get Up and Write…
Author: Sherrie “D” Lon
Published: Sept 22, 2020
Rating: 3 stars
Talitha Koum! Girl Get Up and Write…is full of expressions, ups & downs, high & lows, good & bad times, happy & sad times…….
This book allows you to experience L.I.F.E(what we call LIFE). You get to see the author grow from a child to a young girl, from a young girl to a women. The author uses poetry to speak to the challenges that are plaguing our African American families/communities (spirituality & family issues).
In, closing I like how the author incorporated a sneak peek of her new book as a close to this book. Leaves the readers wanting more now because they see another side of you other than poetry. I want to see what Naomi is up to now.
However I rate this book a 3.5 because interior design, a little more color, change your fonts character & size you are well on your way to a successful 1st book. (If you decide to revise great, If not note for future projects). I recommend this book to youth, young ladies and women book clubs and any one looking for strength.
(Talitha Koum!- Means “little girl, I say to you , Get Up!”)
