    Halsey Street PDF Ø Kindle Edition halsey pdf, street epub, Halsey Street MOBIWell written story of a complicated mother daughter relationship and the changes wrought by gentrification on the main character's neighbourhoodIt's not easy reading a book where it's hard at times to empathize with the main character's words and actions However Naima Coster had me reading and constantly wanting to know about the central relationship of Penelope and her mother Mirella and what might have contributed to the animosity Penelope felt Oddly though Penelope kept telling us how awful her mother was when Coster began showing us Mirella's life as a young wife and mother and much later in the Dominican Republic I found myself caring about Mirella and her difficulties being married to a man who didn't seem to understand her be very involved in his

    Halsey Street PDF Ø Kindle Edition halsey pdf, street epub, Halsey Street MOBI45First published at The Shrinkette Thanks so much to Netgalley and Little A Books for providing me this ARC in exchange for an honest review Plot Penelope Grand is a young black failing artist who moves back home from Pittsburg to take care of her ailing father Ralph Her old neighborhood has been gentrified and taken over by affluent white people and her mother Mirella left them to return to the Dominican Republic So when Penny moves into the attic of the wealthy Harpers she hopes for some semblance of family again But a postcard arrives from Mirella who is seeking reconciliation and Penny’s world is once again turned upside down as old wounds are reopened secrets are spilled and she sets on a path of self discovery It is the mark of a good book that has you still thinking about it days after you’ve finished reading it and Halsey Street certainly fits the bill For what comes across as a simple plot Coster has by no means presented us with

    Halsey Street PDF Ø Kindle Edition halsey pdf, street epub, Halsey Street MOBIThis book is so hard for me to review because it was NOT an easy book for me to listen to I was simultaneously appreciating the importance of the storylines about gentrification in Brooklyn and the intricacies of parent adult child relationships while wanting to scream at the main character about all of her life choices Honestly I almost DNF'd a few times because Penelope's struggles were depressing me because they all seemed so self induced However and this is a big one I recently heard Glory Edim founder of wellreadblackgirl talk on a New York Public Library podcast about many authors not writing books for us to like but simply to tell that particular story And that is 100% the case here I believe I don't think Coster wrote this for meus to like at all we're not supposed to find Penelope adorable and the story sweet Penelope is the prickliest c
