The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae
We know her as the overly complicated Issa Dee on her hit HBO show Insecure, but many don’t know that Issa Rae is also a New York Times best-selling author. In The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, Rae shows us what it’s like to be unapologetically you; even when the world does a horrible job at embracing that. Rae, an awkward introvert who also happens to be Black, doesn’t have the easiest time transitioning through this thing called life. She takes us through her complex journey and shows us the beauty in her uniqueness, as well as the benefits of being and doing you.
