REVIEW ☆ Copperhead Premacist–a white supremacist who was involved in a violent encounter with two young black college students And who is about to be released from prisonBut his stepfather David John also saved Jessup’s family from imploding rescuing his mother and giving Jessup and his siblings a safe home for the first time David John’s release from prison sets off a chain of events that will forever define Jessup’s entry into adulthood dragging him into the swirlin. This was a sparely written thought provoking and ultimately hopeful book that kept me guessing about how it would end As it takes place in Ithaca renamed Cortaca it was a bit like looking at my hometown in a funhouse mirror I wouldn t have made all of the same narrative choices but I found this to be a satisfying read

REVIEW ☆ Copperhead What do we do when the people we love hold beliefs that are fundamentally incompatible with who we are All Jessup wants is to enjoy his senior year at Cortaca High and get a scholarship to attend college It doesn’t seem impossible He’s a standout varsity football player A good student He works at the local movie theater to help his mother make ends meet But it’s hard to live a normal life when everybody in town knows that your stepfather is a white su. Stories With Mr AhamadSeason 2 Episode 2 Copperheadhttpsyoutube Ascn1spYTo be honest I m surprised that I even finished this book As a young Black man reading from the perspective of a reluctant white supremacist was hard to commit to for than a couple of pages Thankfully once I got in about 100 pages deep the story really picked up and there were some incredible character arcs to read through Without giving too much away I LOVE that this is a book about race featuring a white protagonist that isn t a white savior Having the main character struggle with his whiteness and family history without trying to save someone of color really made this book feel I don t know raw and earnest Things got ugly than once in this book and Alexi Zentner wasn t shy about what he wanted and needed to say It s weird a lot of this book made me angry and incredibly uncomfortable but I was appreciative of the fact that it was presented in such a forward wayI have SOOOOOO MUCH to say but I rather save it for a future episode of BookTubePS So that you re not waiting I took points off for the slow and explicit football opening along with a major set piece that shifted the story from super real and believable to fictitious for me People may disagree with me and that s okay because this is still an important and meaningful piece of work I just wasn t 100% in love with it during my entire readAnyway stay tuned UPDATE I was holding onto this until I officially dropped Season 2 of my BookTube series but since I ve been getting some traffic here lately I thought now would be a good timeEnjoy Buried Mountain Secrets just wasn t 100% in love with it during my entire readAnyway stay tuned UPDATE I was holding onto this until I officially dropped Season 2 of my BookTube series but since I ve been getting some traffic here lately I thought now would be a good timeEnjoy

REVIEW ☆ Copperhead G currents of irreconcilable ideologies crushing loyalties and unshakeable guilt Told with unflinching honesty and a ferocious gaze directed at contemporary America’s darkest corners Copperhead vibrates with the energy released by football tackles and car crashes Alexi Zenter unspools the story of boys who think they’re men of the entrenched thinking that supports a split second decision; and asks whether hatred bigotry and violence can ever be unlearne. I d recommend this book to anyone It s definitely written for an older audience than The Hate U Give so it was interesting for me to read Maybe that s because I didn t need the Black Lives Matter explained to me although of course that wasn t always true I definitely still need the people in white supremacy groups explained to me This book didn t uite give you an insider perspective but it wasn t far off It reminded me of of the way Harper Lee explained racism in Go Set A Watchman or How Kevin Roose explained Born again Christians to me in The Unlikely Disciple A glimpse behind the curtain to see how and why people unlike me think The book isn t perfect The ending is disappointingly Hollywood although I would accept that sort of Hollywood ending in the next election in a heartbeat In any case this book has sports and friendship and the problems with growing up like Beartown and like Beartown the community as a whole is fleshed out in a very satisfying way helping the reader understand the pressures Jessup feels as he tries to navigate his way I could have read another 100 pages if the author had given them to me
