***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
In a world divided by fear, hate, and prejudice, Racine embarks on a journey to discover who she really is. After a life time of alienation and rejection because of the colour of her skin and her Black heritage, she discovers the ultimate truth of good
is wrapped up in the magic of the Story. Stories have the power to change the world, but first, the stories need unlocking.
In this thought-provoking, profoundly moving call-to-arms fantasy story, Alison Clarke tells the story of Racine’s self-discovery and coming of age through her exploration of the ‘Story’ throughout time and ages. As Racine travels from the Library of Congress through time and space to lands both magical and real, she unlocks the mysteries of her own heritage and comes to understand that there are more things that join us than divide us.
Winner of Canada’s Diversity Magazine Award ‘Black Writer Of The Year Award 2017’ Alison Clarke writes inspirational, magical stories with a powerful message about being the change in the world we would like to see. For readers of all ages.
Fantasy, coming of age, multicultural characters, DRAGONS and time travel makes Racine an extraordinary book. Based in a world where the story holds powers, Racine travels through time to research and discover how fate, her past and her future interlock. As well as mankind.
Clarke has woven a story that entices and evokes anticipation. Her imagery allows you to travel with Racine through the story. The way she writes is thought-provoking and fantastic. She walks us through RACINE road to self-discovery.
Racine is beautifully written. I recommend it to middle grade and YA readers who need a break from reality and also need a nudge through life and understanding.
5 stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat
