Naledi is a stressed out grad student who only has time for work, studying, and taking care of her lab rats. In the midst of her busy schedule, she keeps getting spam sent to her email stating that she is to marry a prince in Africa, and of course, this prince feels it is his duty to come and find her in New York. This book becomes a humorous account of the romance between Naledi and Thabiso and develops into what it means to have family.

With a mix of memoir and essay, Brittney Cooper reflects on how her own life experiences continue to shape her black feminist theory. From poverty to Christianity, she shows how systemic inequalities influence the daily lives of black women and she has learned to grapple with these outside factors affecting her own life. Cooper learns how to take her rage from the mistreatment and sadness she faces in her life and turn it into joy. I highly recommend this book.

Celestial and Roy seem to have the ideal “Spelhouse” marriage until Roy is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Once Roy is released from prison, Celestial must figure out if she is going to restart her life with him, or continue her relationship with her childhood friend, Andre. The impact of the criminal justice system on their marriage makes this story not just a love triangle, but one that is painfully American, leaving each character to live with a problem they did not create.
