“R/evolution” by Tenea D. Johnson is a powerful and influential novel that empowers the African American community to not forget but focus ahead for our futures!

I have three last words to describe this novel: atypical, fierce, and conversant!

Dystopian future-fic is not usually in my pile, but I bought this at the author's release party in St. Petersburg and took it on a pleasure trip.

This collection of vivid, fast-paced stories interwoven across generations kept me jumping and guessing all the way to the lyrical end. I loved the road trip with Thelma and her three sons! I won't forget this book any time soon.

The story just moves. Scary, sexy, enthralling.
